Big company training for small companies changing the world

Recently, OSC² and Natural Products University joined forces to offer the employees of OSC² member companies access to professional development courses throughout the year. The curriculum includes both soft skills courses, such as Leadership and Organizational Development, as well as technical skills classes, such Excel and Finance for Non-Financial Managers.

NPU is in its fifth year, but the relationship with OSC² is new and very exciting.  We anticipate this partnership will provide both organizations with the opportunity to better serve the employees of mission-based natural products companies.
