By Jinelle Shengulette, Talent Acquisition Manager at Remedy Intelligent Staffing
At Remedy Intelligent Staffing, we understand that people are our greatest resource. We’re in the business of matching qualified jobseekers with exciting job opportunities and ensuring our clients that we’ve found the best person for the job.
That’s part of the reason Remedy has recently partnered with Penn Foster, a leader in online education, to provide free online courses to our associates via our Better WorkLife Academy. The result will be a more educated, empowered workforce for our clients, and the ability to impact the lives of our associates by helping them improve their skills.
Associates only need to work for Remedy Intelligent Staffing for 80 hours or more to be provided this exciting educational opportunity. Our Better WorkLife Academy includes courses Remedy feels best meets the needs of our clients, including Workforce Readiness, Business English, Blueprint Reading, MS Office (Excel, Word PPT), Basic Electrical, Welding, Bookkeeping, Machining, and more.
Online courses can be taken by phone or any mobile device and completed at a pace that’s comfortable for each individual.
The idea is to offer our associates something no other agency can offer today by preparing them, free of charge, for higher skilled and higher paying positions. The Better WorkLife Academy also provides associates an opportunity to enhance their education at their own speed, in a way that allows them to juggle work, education, and home life, as the classes are taken online.
With this program, we’re doing our best to address skills gaps that have been growing for years. For our clients, the Academy will increase the supply and retention of skilled associates and help to identify motivated individuals and active learners.
Internally, we’re not just recruiting the best people to fill our client’s needs, we’re training our associates to be that best option for our client. Remedy is remaining innovative and enhancing our offerings to both clients and associates. And most importantly, of course, is that Remedy Intelligent Staffing is making a difference; we’re enhancing our purpose of putting people to work.
