The world leader in the integration of advanced and innovative airborne systems turned to CCM to increase their competitiveness through programs to upskill leadership and technology skills for their workforce. Robin feels, “Our relationship with CCM has been invaluable to the organization and training department.  CCM, a strategic learning partner, has provided us with robust workshop topics from Leadership Development, Communications, Computer Skills and Presentations training.

Beth related, “The training provided by CCM, as part of the NJBIA grant funding, allowed us to provide Excel training to over 60% of our NJ workforce….The instructors did a great job working with the different skill levels within each class as well as working to understand our business environment and specific needs. As a result of this training, participants are already putting to use what they learned! We look forward to more Excel training and exploring other topics as well. Partnering with CCM was easy and successful and such a wonderful way to provide our employees with training.

JEWISH COMMUNITY HOUSING CORP.: Laurie Loughney, Chief Operating Officer. A major provider of senior housing and elder care services for seniors in the greater Morris area, this organization turned to CCM for technical skills training geared for impact. Laurie shared regarding Excel training provided to her Site Manager, “(my Manager) diligently applied what she learned in the (CCM) course….she created a Marketing Management Program (and) because of her initiative (and the training received) the company did not have to buy an $8000 software program.” She further commented, added Critical Thinking Skills training has allowed advanced “problem solving techniques (to be) incorporated into JCHC quality assurance (practices)”.

ATLANTIC HEALTH SYSTEM: Amanda Raddin McGrath, Coordinator Organization Development. This recognized leader in quality health care and advanced medical technology chose to work with CCM to improve workforce communications and technology skills critical to their mission. Amanda relayed that “CCM is responsive to our needs….The course material is clearly presented and made relatable to the audience…our employees walk away with valuable tips and knowledge.” She additionally stated that the courses Atlantic Health selected to be delivered by CCM“….are useful to (our) employees because they improve their day to day work environment, team work, (and) learning how to cope in stressful situations and (to) communicate better.”

AAA NEW JERSEY AUTOMOBILE CLUB: Betsy Adey, President. This leading provider of road side assistance, car care, travel and insurance offerings called on CCM to support the transformation of their business to be a sales-focused culture. Betsy recounts how this collaboration has unfolded, “AAA New Jersey Automobile Club began the process of exploring a training grant from the Department of Labor with County College of Morris over a year ago. Our goal was to give our employees the skills they need to succeed in a competitive and demanding business environment. CCM’s Center for Business and Technology guided us through the complex process of getting a grant. They monitored grant availability, assisted us in writing the grant, and made sure that we were first in line to receive an $80,000 training grant. We are currently in the process of implementing a year-long sales and sales management training program developed by CCM. We are thrilled to receive the funding needed to offer a training program to our employees that will address our corporate goals and have a direct impact on our bottom line. We are two months into the training and employee feedback has been very positive. We are extremely grateful for the expertise and commitment we received from CCM that made this possible.”

The (delivery) process is simple, with minimal administration required on our part, and maximum results! The courses exceeded our expectations, as the instructors truly took the time to address the individual concerns our employees raised-and thus even solved a few everyday operational challenges!
