Partnership learning a success for multilingual workers

David and Michael Israeli, the third generation to lead a Philadelphia manufacturer, recently committed time and funding to customized training for their front-line supervisors. The decision enabled the Israelis to tackle two challenges common in business: developing and retaining key employees, thus avoiding the expense of hiring and training new workers; and helping employees become better decision-makers. This is where the corporate training experts at Penn State Abington Continuing Education came into the equation and designed a plan specific to the goals of the 60-year-old firm: to provide 10 supervisors with advanced training relevant to their work environment and to do so on site.

Or will they seek something beyond the sofa to stimulate and enrich their days? Find the answer at Penn State Abington's Kids and Teen College open house between 10 a.m. and noon on Saturday, May 14 in Lares Building. Potential participants can discover what camps are new, have their questions answered and enjoy the picturesque campus. Children are welcome to attend and participate in fun activities.
