Why We do What We Do? Our Beginning

GSHA was founded based on

  1. Skill for dicing & slicing data into smaller groups or views so the data actually speaks off the page. I have help 100’s of company around the globe improve their quality performance using this technique.

  2. Passion to help better lives through the sharing of my knowledge or skill with mentoring, training, and coaching.

The key services we offer are quality manufacturing training, staffing services and coaching/mentoring.   We upskill the talent to provide a skilled workforce for successful execution.

Why the ELC was formed?

The ELC was formed to provide…a positive disruption to the existing approach for recruiting, upskilling, & hiring quality talent.

  • For the employer, GSHA Quality Services help organize and manage the recruitment, upskilling, & hiring process to maximize responsiveness to employers to deliver an employer return on investment.

  • For the individual, GSHA Quality Services help to upskill the worker in transition (unskilled and low skill) with training, mentoring, and job placement to increase earning potential for sustainability.
