,

Industry demand for skilled workers in Kansas is significant, and the skills gap faced by many Kansas employers requires new, creative solutions to overcome the challenges and create a pipeline of qualified employees. In partnership with the Kansas Board of Regents, the Kansas Department of Commerce developed Workforce Aligned with Industry Demand (AID) to address the skills gap currently challenging companies across the state.

Employers drive the training process

While training providers are selected based on a competitive bid process, it is employers who define how the training is developed.

Employers outline the skills and credentials their employees need to find success and work directly with training providers to create a curriculum that will deliver positive outcomes.

Designed for mutual success

Businesses lead the selection process, identifying candidates who meet their needs and requirements, and then extend contingent offers to the candidates selected. Potential employees have the opportunity to learn about a company, its culture and opportunities before accepting a contingent offer and beginning training. This leads to an overall reduction in training and recruitment costs, as well as increased retention of employees hired through the process.
