Facing a shortage of skilled talent needed to grow its business, Permac Industries partnered on a program to provide underemployed people with fast-track training needed for machine-operator jobs.
"Working with our area community colleges, Permac and other precision machine shops were able to design a new accelerated model that meets our hiring needs – Right Skills Now!”
Permac Industries needed to find employers with the skills necessary to run sophisticated precision machine tools and equipment while also maintaining the company’s reputation for on-time delivery and quality service.
Permac partnered with Minnesota educational institutes and other partners to create “Right Skills Now,” a fast-track education initiative. “Right Skills Now” provides a semester of applied instruction plus a paid internship, with the goal of preparing students for employment as entry-level CNC operators.
