Professional Development Skills

The most important investment a company or business can make is in its employees. It is the responsibility of a company to ensure the staff is trained, not just in the technical aspects of their job, but in the interpersonal aspects as well.

Consider this: employees with advanced skills, working to their full potential and equipped to deal with the changing demands of the workplace usually have a higher morale, career satisfaction, creativity, and motivation levels; increased productivity and responsiveness in meeting departmental objectives. The SSC offers multiple types of trainings under several categories including:

  • Communication
  • Customer Service
  • Emotion Management
  • Team Building
  • Leadership
  • Time Management
  • HR Essentials

Each training program can be brought to your company location or be offered virtually and will be customized to meet your specific needs. We also offer scheduled workshops that are available to the general public. For a current list, please refer to the semester non-credit schedule.
