Since being chosen as the recipient of a grant from the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund Program (WTFP), Bryley Systems has been working closely with Dave Clough from mPOWER Associates and Sandra Kearney from GROWTHco to provide valuable training to Bryley’s staff members.
We are excited about the opportunity this training creates for Bryley systems. So far the focus has been on effective communication and leadership skills. As we move further into 2019, the training program shall become more targeted, focusing on individual departments and the unique skill sets required by Bryley personnel to be effective in their specific roles.
The WTFP is a state program, financed by Massachusetts businesses, designed to provide training to the Massachusetts workforce by enabling employers across the State with essential resources. The fund prioritizes projects focusing on job growth, job retention, increased skills, improved productivity and those companies that demonstrate a significant private investment in employee training.
In 2017, companies completing grants added jobs at a rate of 8.2%, as opposed to the statewide average 3.1%, and the New England average 2.7%.
This project is funded by a Workforce Training Fund grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development. The grant program is administered by Commonwealth Corporation.
