A properly trained workforce is the most important asset a company has, yet it doesn’t receive the attention it should.
Harrisonburg, VA (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
Online education and skills assessment resource Approved Colleges (http://www.ApprovedColleges.com) announced today the launch of its Business Services Education and Assessment Platform (http://Business.Approvedcolleges.com) that allows businesses to quickly create and customize their own employee training portals complete with thousands of online degrees, online professional development courses and skills assessment tests. Businesses using the platform are able to track and report all employee outcomes, creating job based training pathways and use online skills assessment tests to screen job applicants.
“A properly trained workforce is the most important asset a company has, yet it doesn’t receive the attention it should” said Founder Tony Huffman. “It is simply a casualty of the Human Resource function being stretched too thin; especially given what is going on in health care; I don’t know a single HR professional who is getting everything done on their “to do” list.”
Employees are able to select from a variety of professional training courses and assessments from general personal development categories such as customer service, sales and marketing, and leadership to specific technical training and job skills in addition to thousands of online degrees from accredited universities.
Huffman added, “We developed tools that businesses can use to implement and track employee development and training programs that are extremely easy to use and quick to set up while solving a critical need in workforce development. Our Business Services platform can be customized and configured to each organization’s unique needs in about 20 minutes. The platform and reporting features are free to set up and very easy to use with the goal of helping HR Professionals quickly solve their employee development objectives.”
The new service is touted as a powerful and time saving platform designed for all size businesses with an emphasis on small to medium organizations where the workforce development and hiring functions fall under the general Human Resources umbrella.
