Technical Skills Training

  • Do current or projected skill shortages pose a significant challenge to your organization?
  • How prepared is your organization to address these challenges?
  • What key functions pose the greatest challenge?
  • Are individuals responsible for key relationships or operating procedures projected to retire?
  • Are your managers and leadership positioned to effectively manage your talent and internal expertise to adequately address these challenges?

Skills gaps impact an organization at all levels – operations, finance, leadership.

Assess the Current Situation

New Hampshire MEP’s Critical Skills Assessment is a facilitated, self assessment that gathers data about your company and the currents skills level and gaps in technical knowledge.

It will provide the data necessary to determine direction and priorities in the following categories:

  • Evaluating and modifying your training and development programs
  • Training recommendations for assessed personnel
  • Key performance indicators and the financial impact on your organization
  • Recruitment strategies to assist your organization in finding qualified new hires

An in-depth report, including a training matrix, will provide baseline information that can be used to facilitate a discussion on your current strengths and weaknesses in these areas.

Call New Hampshire MEP at 603-226-3200 to schedule an assessment of your current workforce needs.
