Training Needs Assessments
Each workforce system has a unique mission, vision, and staff capacity needs that drive service delivery. Our approach to capacity building begins with an examination of a system’s strengths and limitations. We use a variety of tools to measure the knowledge, skills, and abilities of all staff and leadership. Clients employ the findings garnered in these assessments to recognize training needs at each level of a local workforce system.
Customized Training Design and Delivery
Given that no two clients are the same, we specifically focus on designing a training curriculum that takes into account each client’s diverse needs and distinct nuances.
Capacity Building Training Offerings
Relevant, high-quality training at every level is key to building an inter-connected workforce system that can withstand change. We recognize that the ebb and flow brought on by changing staff needs, new legislation, regulations or policies, performance trends, and other dynamics requires responsive, just-in-time training. We make the necessary adjustments to our training curriculum to ensure your system is equipped to deliver high-quality service.
Building capacity often requires technical assistance, primarily when leadership aims to implement such strategies. PCG supports workforce board leaders and managers by providing technical assistance in the areas that directly and indirectly impact long-term sustainability and continuous improvement, including coaching, strategic planning, data-driven decision making, fiscal oversight, program design, and change management.
