The GTA is bringing experts to the Gorge for this great event from Oregon Manufacturing Extension Partnership (OMEP)! Details from OMEP:

We all know that finding skilled workers is a challenge. Once you find them, ramp-up times for new employees can be costly. Your workforce challenges don’t have to be such a financial burden.

Join OMEP’s hands-on workshop to learn how to get a scalable training infrastructure that boosts new hire ramp-up speeds and reduces turnover.

You will come away with a customized plan for your manufacturing company and immediately actionable implementation strategies. Designed with adult learning principles in mind, this intense workshop will empower you to build an engaged workforce – giving your company a significant competitive advantage. Whether you’re a veteran trainer or new to training, this workshop will guide you on the path to increased productivity and shorter ramp-up times.

You Will Learn:

  • How to reduce ramp-up time for new employees.
  • How to make an action plan to combat the skilled worker shortage.
  • How to build a plan for employee development that increases your bottom line and decreases financial risk.
  • How to boost your output through employee engagement.

Is the event only for manufacturers?
While the workshop is geared toward manufacturers, it could apply to other businesses. The principle OMEP is teaching is how to bring a new employee on-board and train them quickly to get up to speed and begin adding value to the company faster, as well as how to train existing employees on multiple tasks more quickly. OMEP uses a process called Structured On the Job Training to do this, which involves breaking complicated tasks down into bite sized pieces. Employers would build job modules, which are partially created by the people who perform those tasks daily, and then train with those new standardized materials.

COST: $50 per attendee. Register here (required).
