Forged by a new partnership between the Lorain County JVS and Lorain County Community College, the Workforce Innovation Network (WIN) is the local solution for our county’s workforce needs.
“Whether you’re an individual looking to improve your skills or a company looking for talented employees, you’ll find what you need with WIN’s proven solutions and innovative programs,” said LCCC President Roy A. Church.
WIN is a member of the Lorain County Growth Partnership (LCGP) and complements the business expansion, attraction and retention efforts of the members by providing a comprehensive workforce education and training network to support regional economic growth. Through training, expertise and customized workforce solutions, WIN gives employers a single source to help simplify and customize their workforce, said Lorain County JVS Superintendent Glenn Faircloth.
“WIN brings together the best of both LCCC and JVS to meet all of your workforce needs,” he said. “Our goal is to help you streamline the process of finding relevant training for your employees by offering you a single point of contact for all of your workforce training needs.”
The first partnership of its kind in our area, WIN combines the best of both organizations to deliver workforce solutions that make the difference – all at a great value. “At WIN, we work hard to simplify workforce development by providing a single source for all employee and employer needs,” Faircloth said.
Church noted that he has been told time and again by employers that one of the biggest limitations they face is having the right talent for the right job. “WIN makes sense. It’s the right thing for us to do, and the time to do it is now,” Church said. “Employers need talent with the right skills so both the company and individual can succeed.”
Local companies appreciate the experienced training that is available from the WIN partners. “They are very flexible, easy to work with and will accommodate our various needs through course customization,” said Erica Jacob, associate, Human Resources, Nordson Corporation. “We truly appreciate the partnership that we’ve developed with LCCC over the years.”
