Targeted training programs can help Canadian companies scale operations, reduce talent gaps, and foster innovative problem solving. But despite the clear benefits of workforce development, few companies allocate enough capital to nurturing world-class talent.
Employers should consider tapping into government funding programs to boost their training budgets.
During the Training Grants for Workforce Development webinar, attendees will learn about the top government funding programs that can offset a portion of training costs by up to 50-83%. Attendees will also receive information on training solutions available that can help teams within organizations become aligned on a strategy and help expand their innovative and creative capabilities.
