Keeping staff skilled and competitive
According to a study from the Center for Labor and Community, companies and jobs can be saved if there are timely, well-informed, and creative actions taken by unions, local government, the business community, community residents, and others who are real stakeholders in the success or failure of these companies.
At PeninsulaWorks, we take our responsibility to ‘take creative action’ very seriously. We have a number of training, lay-off aversion, and hiring resources to support the needs of businesses and employers in San Mateo County.
