Becton, Dickinson and Co. Partners with Alamo Colleges for $450,027 Job-Training Grant

AUSTIN – Becton, Dickinson and Co. (BD) has partnered with Alamo Colleges to provide job training using a $450,027 Skills Development Fund grant from the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). 

“This grant will help meet the needs of our state’s manufacturing industry by upgrading the skills of nearly 250 Texans,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Hope Andrade. “This high-impact partnership will support the continued competitiveness, profitability, and sustainability of this company and of the San Antonio region as a whole.”

The grant will be used to custom train 248 new and incumbent workers to properly perform essential office and administrative skills in a timely and efficient manner. Those trained will include customer service representatives, associate care specialists and accounts payable specialists. Upon completion of training, the workers will earn an average hourly wage of $19.98.
"The Alamo Colleges is pleased to be selected to custom train employees for Becton, Dickinson and Co., enabling this globally recognized healthcare organization to enhance their operations locally, while also enhancing the economic well being of their workers and our local economy," said Alamo Colleges Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie.

 “BD has found true partners in the Texas Workforce Commission, Alamo Colleges and the City of San Antonio to create economic opportunity for BD and the community,” said BD Vice President of Global Shared Services Paul Nicolaisen. “The grant to BD and Alamo Colleges through the Texas Workforce Commission’s Skills Development Fund will enable hundreds of new and existing BD associates to receive the training they need to achieve their professional goals and help BD pursue its purpose of ‘Helping All People Live Healthy Lives’.”

 From the program’s inception in 1996 through 2013, Skills Development Fund grants have created or upgraded more than 300,456 jobs throughout Texas. The grants have assisted 3,971 employers with their customized training needs. The Legislature allocated nearly 48 million to the Skills Development Fund for the 2014-15 biennium. Employers seeking more information about the Skills Development Fund may visit the TWC website at http://skills.texasworkforce.org.
