Siemens chief Eric Spiegel: ‘America has a training gap’

Siemens chief Eric Spiegel: ‘America has a training gap’ | Always eLearning | Scoop.it
The CEO and president of Siemens highlights the nation’s training gap during event on future of manufacturing.
gregmhagar's insight:
“America has a training gap,”Spiegel said. “Until we put the burden on those who train rather than those who need to be trained, we’ll never solve this problem.”

Nicely put. I have always thought this "off loading" of training onto potential/future employees (with no guarantees of course) was just another way for companies to suck profit from private individuals and public institutions.

Educators are harnessing online materials to meet the toughest challenges in higher education: giving more students access to college, and helping them graduate on time.
