Where the Workers Are

Community colleges are creating customized workforce development programs to address the shortage of skilled workers in the U.S. and help retain jobs that might otherwise be offshored.
The recession hit Michigan, home of the nation’s automotive industry, hard in 2008 and 2009. For Autocam Corp. in Grand Rapids, this meant taking drastic action to protect its business and 1,500-employee workforce…
Autocam leaders, according to Woczynski, realized the company could build on its existing employee training relationship with Grand Rapids Community College to plan for five or 10 years down the road.
The SafeZone program is a diversity education program that includes all individuals in a personal journey toward greater understanding and inclusion (regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, weight, height, marital status, status as a Vietnam era veteran, and disability, as a reflection of the GRCC EEOC statement). The program philosophy provides not only a safe space for all people, but also increases communication and understanding among people. One of the goals of SafeZone is to emphasize that all individuals will be treated and respected as human beings. Further, the program emphasizes that ignorance, bigotry, and harassment will not be tolerated in an environment of learning.
The next session will be held on: Thursday, November 8, 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., in the Diversity Learning Center conference room, please register at email@example.com
