Competitive businesses optimize their human resources by training their workforce. Often times, managers and other supervisory staff have never even received formal management training. ITAC's supervisory development training gives these staff members the skills needed to manage employees in accordance with human resource “best practices." ITAC also offers training in lean manufacturing techniques, customer service skills, computer skills, team building, quality assurance, shop math, blue print reading, and many other disciplines.
Quality personnel are a key asset for any effective organization, and each organization has its own special requirements that make it difficult to attract the right worker for the job. So ITAC works with clients' staff to identify precise needs in order to create effective and accurate job descriptions. ITAC uses it's wealth of resources to locate and screen employment candidates according to these specifications and then presents the employer with a handful of quality candidates to choose from. Our job is to free you up to focus on your business and minimize the downtime associated with recruitment — we are here to do the legwork you do not have time for.
