Hawaii Business Magazine: Companies Partner With Schools to Grow Needed Workforce
April 1, 2020
By the end of this summer, about 140 rising high school seniors and recent graduates will be ready for employment as medical assistants, nurse aides and surgical instrument processing technicians. (The medical assistant program ends in the summer.)
As Hawai‘i’s population ages, the Aloha State needs more entry level health care workers, so Hawai‘i Pacific Health launched several high school training programs to build up the workforce.
The health care organization is not alone. As it becomes increasingly harder to fill certain positions, industries and companies are partnering with educators to develop their own workforce training programs.
