Labor Data/Workforce Development

 

Fatten your bottom line with practices like lean manufacturing and skill driven productivity.

 

It’s a new world for global industry: Gone are the days when manufacturers could afford to view workforce as simply an expense. In today’s competitive market, leading manufacturers are discovering that production and operations excellence are a critical source of value for bottom line profitability. Lean manufacturing and Six Sigma practices, production efficiencies and shop floor agility—they all depend on a flexible, skilled and dedicated workforce, a key competitive advantage this region provides in abundance.

 

It begins with our robust right-to-work labor pool - over 172,000 available within our five-county region. Add in one of the lowest private-sector unionization rates in the nation and a rock-solid work ethic.  Our high quality K-12 education is built to insure college and career readiness, and a bounty of higher education opportunities that foster life-long learning.

 

The final, critical, element of the equation: Tennessee College of Applied Technology Hartsville (TCATH), part of Tennessee’s cutting-edge workforce development network.

 

 

Special Industry Training (SIT): Custom fit, custom flexibility.

 

TCATH works through two complementary tracks: For residents, TCATH offers certificate and diploma programs in more than 50 occupational fields. For business and industry TCATH provides custom training (and retraining) through the Special Industry Training (SIT) program which promotes maximum productivity from startup through expansion.

 

For students TCATH offers the convenience of attending classes at the Hartsville main campus and at other local instructional service centers. For qualified business, SIT may be implemented onsite in the work environment, on the production floor for hands-on experience, or may be incorporated as a flexible individual program within TCATH’s regular scheduling.

 

TCATH instructors are top-flight professionals, both knowledgeable and experienced, and TCATH success is proven across a variety of sectors.

 

 

All purpose workforce resource:

Tennessee workforce assistance may also encompass employee recruitment and screening, travel expense support and industrial material. This is a state, and a region, ready to do what it takes to help your operation succeed.
