Business Management Essentials
Employee recruitment and retention remains, as always, a top priority for small businesses in Saskatchewan. Keeping good people is key to growing a successful business and we have heard this message loud and clear from businesses across the province. To meet this need, the Chambers have created a training initiative that addresses a number of topics from customer service to conflict resolution.
Saskatchewan Chamber has partnered with the Saskatchewan Colleges to deliver dynamic and informational management/leadership workshops that will help employees to build on their core business, supervisory and leadership skills.
The Business Management Essentials (BME) provided by the Colleges are ideal for aspiring, new, and current supervisors and business professionals. These programs will help learners improve their management and leadership acumen through practical, skill-oriented business courses. This training is provided through interactive workshop-style classes facilitated by leading edge instructors who will challenge and build the learner’s core business, leadership, and management skills.
The BME program is designed with two levels of achievement. Once four workshops have been successfully completed, a Level 1 Certificate will be awarded. When eight workshops have been completed, the Level 2 Certificate will be awarded. There will be in excess of eight workshops for businesses to choose from.
In order for a business to be considered for Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant (CSJG) funding www.saskatchewan.ca\job-grant, they must register for either Level 1 training consisting of four (4) workshops; or Level 2 training consisting of a subsequent four (4) workshops.
