As economy rebounds Vital Skills International adds staff

Business training is one of the budget line items hit hardest in tough economic times. It's also one that sees a big surge in interest when the economy rebounds.

Vital Skills International is a prime example of this. The Rochester Hills-based company took its lumps when the recession set in a few years ago. It hired one person over the last year on a revenue increase of 12 percent, mainly from companies looking to keep their smartest employees.

"Today's knowledge workers don't hang around if you don't develop them," says Doug Finton, managing director of Vital Skills International.

Finton expects to add another job or two, thanks to continued double-digit revenue growth -- and potentially more if the company can capitalize on all the interest it is receiving today. The firm is also looking for interns for this summer.

"We have so much interest in the pipeline right now that we're taking steps to make sure we have enough trainers primed and ready," Finton says.
