Kristi Hoskinson, VP of CareerEdge, and Tom McDougal, CEO, Manatee Memorial Hospital, signing grant agreement

CareerEdge Funders Collaborative, the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce workforce initiative, recently awarded $42,500 to upskill workers at Manatee Memorial Hospital.

Manatee Memorial has developed a training plan to upskill 25 of its employees, ranging from entry-to mid-level. The hospital will use grant funding from CareerEdge to help offset the $207,000 investment in this segment of its workforce.

Upskilling workers grant funding is a signature initiative of CareerEdge. Once a year, CareerEdge accepts grant applications from manufacturing, healthcare, insurance, and skilled trades sector employers who can make a compelling case that CareerEdge’s “Employer Partnership" mode  will help them accelerate promotions for incumbent workers, while speeding job creation and improving their bottom line. This model helps employers close skills gaps and speed the advancement of incumbent and new workers.
