I was approached during NPE the other week by a manager…
We used to do On the Job training, but now we do nothing for our employees. How do we get started again?
The first step is to start training, even if it is something as simple as cross training. For example, you could have a technician assist in some mold PM’s to learn more about tooling.
Your employees will never get into the mindset if you never do any training. Employees want to do a good job, but they need the necessary intellectual tools to succeed.
I understand that there is much more to effective plant-wide employee development than this, but any training is better than no training at all… and you have to start somewhere.
