Sector councils and associations are the bodies that give governance and/or leadership to the range of professions that make up the workforce. Both kinds of governing bodies have encountered an increasingly complex set of challenges in this decade.
Changing demographics, increased immigration and the rapid pace of technological advancement combine to add pressure for solutions. Organizations need skilled workers who can either “hit the ground running” or quickly “come up to speed”.
Employees need to take responsibility to get certified or licensed so that they can grow with their organizations.
AWES understands this and has been part of the solution since our beginning. We have worked with many governing bodies from energy and manufacturing to construction, forestry and food processing.
We will remain a key partner in the strategic alliance of governing bodies, employers, workers, educators and government to anticipate skills development issues and implement the corresponding workplace solutions.
