Is A Bilingual Training Program What Your Organization Needs?

The national labor shortage in manufacturing is creating large recruitment and training challenges for US Manufactures. Alongside the many challenges posed towards the industry, the US workforce continues to push towards more diverse composition in this increasingly global environment. Companies are hiring large numbers of talented individuals, who may have limited English-speaking abilities and growing their skill sets in-house.

Does your organization have a large Spanish speaking workforce? Are you looking for ways to upskill and retain this segment of your workforce?

USDOL has done studies showing the advantages of employees learning and retain more knowledge from training programs when they understand the content. Teaching a program to Spanish speaking employees in Spanish helps these workers retain and understand the topics and adapt the concepts better and faster to their work environment.

New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) has two manufacturing programs that are offered in Spanish to address these growing training requirements.
