The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce announced a provincial-wide business training partnership with Southeast College on Monday morning. The joint effort will be aimed at providing essential management skills training to chamber members across Saskatchewan.
This new training partnership with Southeast College will be made available through chambers of commerce province wide.
“One of the clearest messages from our membership has been the need to upskill their people,” noted Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce CEO Steve McLellan. “Growth is key to business success, and a big part of that is developing and retaining the best people.”
The business management essentials program was developed in partnership with Southeast College and will be delivered in strategic locations across the province. Modules are one-day workshop style classes that focus on skills such as supervisory, workplace bullying/harassment, time management, leadership skills and other. The certification will be in two levels and will be endorsed by the Saskatchewan Chamber and certified by Southeast College.
“We’ve built this programming with businesses in mind,” said College Vice President Jeff Richards. “These programs provide folks with real world skills and tools to not only enhance their management skills, but to build better businesses.”
The program is set to launch in the fall of 2019 with classes beginning in Regina. Registration begins on September 1, 2019 on https://www.southeastcollege.org/.
“The opportunity to build a stronger and more adaptable Saskatchewan is something both the chamber and the college are always seeking, and this is another step in that direction,” concluded McLellan.
