Manufacturers are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in different ways. Some are surge hiring to produce essential products, while others are scaling back or laying off valuable workers. Though there is uncertainty about the future, one thing is for sure: when the crisis is over, a trained and ready workforce will be critical to our economic recovery.
In anticipation of that day, we have developed a series of webinars to address specific aspects of onboarding and training that are applicable to whether your business is surge hiring to address critical shortages or gearing up to restart production. These FREE, one-hour sessions will help you prepare your workforce for the challenges ahead.
Traditionally, manufacturing has emphasized productivity over staff development. However, forward-thinking leaders know that tools like benchmarking assessments offer a means to measure workforce competencies against other goals. Gaps can lead to prioritized training initiatives that reflect an organization’s trajectory. The result is well-spent, targeted training that directly impacts organizational needs. Simply put, assessments save time and money.
This webinar will look at best practices surrounding designing, communicating and implementing a benchmark assessment. Topics include: 1. Cultural reactions to testing, 2. Benefits of testing, and 3. Action steps once testing is complete.
