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.
Many understand “lean” as limited to optimizing the efficiency of existing manufacturing processes. With that narrow idea, it is hard to see how lean is relevant when so many lives have been upended by the effects of the novel coronavirus. Lean was born in a time of instability, confusion, and scarcity. For decades lean has provided direction, a framework for action, and inspiration through periods of disaster and disruption. In this webinar, we will explore the origins of lean and how it can help people learn in new situations, be more resilient, adaptive, and grow problem-solving capacity. Attendees can receive 10% off their Lean Bronze, Lean Silver, and/or Lean Gold Certification Exams. Ask your presenter for details.
