Our current workforce lacks soft skills. To make job prospects attractive to employers, we will propose a training curriculum that will include accountability, customer service, reliability, and other skills needed. GFPB will also work with the local manufacturing alliance to develop needed workplace skills training needed for our local industries.
A Workforce Development Taskforce has been formed and is working to develop and identify training needs and solutions. Employability training will also be addressed during this process. The taskforce has enhanced corporate relationships with educational institutions to increase the number of internships offered to local students.
