bigstock-business-technology-people--84991253Targeted training programs for employee advancement can help Canadian companies scale operations and bring a competitive advantage. But despite the clear benefits of workforce progression, few organizations allocate enough capital to invest in upskill, leadership, and operational development.

Organizations want growth, and the ability to sustain success in the constant changing markets and competitive landscape.

If you are looking to grow your business and drive a transformative learning strategy with lasting change and sustainment, this event is for you. During the Training Grants for Upskill Development webinar, we will discuss how to effectively determine, implement, and sustain upskills training, and will touch on tools that build and create a strong foundation to ensure team engagement, optimal productivity, and growth. We'll also cover the top government funding programs that can offset a portion of training costs by up to 50-83%.

Mentor Works will be joined by Laura Moon, founder of Bare Slate. Bare Slate is a training and business consulting firm that focuses on transformational growth, human capital empowerment, and cultures of accountability. They believe each business element needs to work symbiotically to foster growth and change and that your people are the key to success.
