The National Fund for Workforce Solutions, a national network promoting economic opportunity and prosperous communities through investment and innovation, has announced its 2017 recipients of the Young Adult Employer Champion award.
This year, TRUMPF is among the first to receive the Pathways to Apprenticeship award. “We are honored to receive this award recognizing our apprenticeship program,” said Christine Benz, Training Manager at TRUMPF. “The skills gap is a problem plaguing many manufacturers today, and we have found a proactive solution that not only benefits our workforce, but also provides opportunities for young people to amass the skills needed for a successful career in manufacturing.”
A presentation will be held June 15-16, 2017 in Philadelphia, PA during the National Fund’s Leadership meeting where all recipients of the Young Adult Employer Champion award will be recognized. The Convening is intended to advance the national conversation on key issues relating to jobs.
