Trumpf recently announced that it is among businesses receiving the Pathways to Apprenticeship award as part of the National Fund for Workforce Solutions’s Young Adult Employer Champion award.
“We are honored to receive this award recognizing our apprenticeship program,” Trumpf’s training manager Christine Benz said in a news release.
“The skills gap is a problem plaguing many manufacturers today, and we have found a proactive solution that not only benefits our workforce but also provides opportunities for young people to amass the skills needed for a successful career in manufacturing,” Benz said.
National Fund’s leadership recognized Young Adult Employer Champion award recipients at a meeting this month in Philadelphia.
