Local businesses seeking to galvanize their workers with new or expanded skills have a new resource in Pierce County.
In partnership with Tacoma Community College, Bates Technical College, and Clover Park Technical College, Pierce College now offers Invista Performance Solutions, a workforce training resource that provides customized, targeted worker training for businesses.
Invista pools the resources of all five Pierce County colleges with a larger network of schools across the country and Canada to provide high quality, diverse training for business owners and managers. For example, businesses wishing to expand in a specific overseas market would be able to get targeted language training for its workers, or a business that's changing to a new accounting system would receive training for its workers in the new system.
"As the economy improves and businesses begin to grow and expand their workforce, access to high-quality, targeted training becomes especially important," explained Dr. Patrick Schmitt, president of Pierce College Puyallup. "Pierce College is pleased to collaborate with the other Pierce County community and technical colleges to provide businesses the tools they need for economic recovery and continued success."
