PATHS for Texas Online Retail Academy
Workforce Solutions, in partnership with the Katy Chamber of Commerce, would like to invite you to a round table discussion about an exciting new retail training initiative for front-line workers called, PATHS for Texas. This round table discussion will be held via zoom on Wednesday October 14, 2020 from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm. Please click on the registration link below or contact the Katy Chamber of Commerce, or Scott Wagner at Scott.Wagner@wrksolutions.com.
This round table discussion is in response to the shortage of qualified and skilled employee(s) in the retail industry. Workforce Solutions has partnered with the Walmart Foundation to launch an initiative in collaboration with training institutions such as Houston Community College and Penn Foster to provide online skills training programs to launch and accelerate a career in retail. These programs are designed to provide staff with the flexibility to learn through online courses that are instructor led with structure or at your own pace. These courses lead to nationwide recognized credentials from the National Retail Foundation (NRF) and they are provided to employers and their employee(s) at no charge.
Retail is important to the economy in the Gulf Coast region and Workforce Solutions is dedicated to making sure both employers and employees in retail thrive, especially during the recovery from the epidemic. Through this initiative, your employee(s) will gain improved skills in dealing with customers and understanding what is needed to give customers superior service. As an employer, you can improve the motivation and skills of your line staff by giving them the opportunity to earn a nationally recognized certification, which proves to you that they know how to provide exception customer service. Additionally, the retail training will inform participants how to build a strong career in the retail industry, that will help to retain and grow your workforce.
We look forward to seeing you at the round table, sharing information about this program and to find out how we can be of service to you.
