Crestron is proud to welcome fourteen new hires to its growing team of highly skilled and motivated employees. The second Electronics Technical Customized Training Program provides job seekers with the necessary skills to qualify for technical positions at Crestron. The graduates of the program received recognition for their accomplishments today during a special ceremony at Crestron World Headquarters in Rockleigh.
The program, made possible through a partnership between Crestron, the Bergen County Workforce Investment Board (WIB), the New Jersey Department of Labor, Bergen Community College and NJBIA, provides a strong technical foundation for electronic testers and technicians.
“We are proud to welcome these graduates to our dynamic team,” said Martin Devaney, Crestron Senior Director of Human Resources. “The training program helps sharpen the skills of individuals, making them valuable assets to potential employers. But more importantly, the program directly impacts the workforce and economic development in Northern New Jersey.”
Local dignitaries, Senator Gerald Cardinale and Assemblywoman, Connie Wagner were on hand to welcome the new hires to Crestron. During the celebration, Crestron gave a tour of the 9,000 square foot Customer Experience Center, which features a multimedia presentation room, videoconferencing boardroom, home theater, hospitality suite and expansive interactive design lab that displays more than 500 Crestron products.
Attendees also enjoyed a rare look into the 100,000 square foot Research Center and the 150,000 square foot manufacturing plant.
The fourteen individuals will begin working at Crestron on April 18.
