The Industry-Business Institute

Resources for Business

For decades, businesses in Union County have looked to the Industry-Business Institute (IBI) as a one-source solution for customized management and employee training needs. Training is a vital ingredient for success for new employees, or long term employees who need new skills, and the managers for whom they work. We deliver our training with quality instructors, excel­lent materials, and flexible scheduling. We also assist with need assessment, identify objectives, and recommend client-specific strategies. Our training solutions optimize retention of valued workers and help with change as business needs expand and evolve.

IBI offers ongoing grant-funded programs in basic workforce and literacy skills through a grant from the NJ LWD to the New Jersey Community College Consortium. These are offered at our campuses on an open enrollment basis or at employer locations for existing staff in groups of ten (10) or more.

IBI at Union County College is an approved training provider for the NJ Department of Labor Workforce Development Partnership Act and provides customized training grants and literacy training grants to eligible New Jersey employers. We also provide assis­tance securing and administering these grants at no cost to you.
