Regardless of Industry, there are some truths about being in business:
- Your staff are your most valuable resource.
- You recognize this and look for opportunities for them to develop and grow.
- You are promoting or looking to promote from within your organization.
- You don’t have the internal capacity to teach your employees the skills they may need as they grow into management or other leadership roles.
The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, Empire State College, and the Saratoga County Capital Resources Corporation (SCCRC) have partnered to create a solution to this challenge – the Saratoga County Institute of Management (SCIM).
By selecting employees to participate in this program, you will be providing them with the tools and training they need to continue to grow and excel in your organization.
The program is organized into 3 three-month tracks. Send someone to all three tracks for advanced learning or select the individuals you believe will benefit most by participating in the targeted tracks. Sessions will be held from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm at Empire State College, 113 West Avenue in Saratoga Springs.
The learning tracks are centered around themes; Operational Management, Self-Awareness, and Management of Others.
