How to train your manufacturing workforce effectively while maintaining needed flexibility

Tooling U Blog

In the competitive world of manufacturing, maintaining a positive workforce culture can be impacted heavily by one crucial factor: training. A positive and thriving workplace culture and sustained employee retention can be created by empowering your team with the knowledge and skills they need to excel. Here at CIFT, our team understands that investing in continuous training can enhance productivity and also foster a sense of purpose and engagement among employees.

But finding training options in a time of challenging workforce issues has become a Catch-22 nightmare for employers and HR departments, and locating affordable options can be difficult. And when you need to find the time to train your workforce, along with a scope of options extensive enough to meet your needs, it can be impossible to do without shutting down or reducing production.

To meet these challenges CIFT has teamed up with Tooling U-SME to create a unique service offering. This program has five distinct factors that we believe solve the problems manufacturers face, without sacrificing any quality in the training process. They are: 

  1. CIFT’s Coordination and Guidance: We seamlessly guide manufacturers through the Tooling U engagement, ensuring a smooth and effective training process from start to finish.
  2. Tailored Training to Specifications: Our approach emphasizes customization, allowing manufacturers to handpick relevant classes tailored to their specific needs and goals.
  3. Flexible and Accessible Learning: With online classes available on various devices and adaptable self-paced modules, employees can engage conveniently, optimizing their learning experience.
  4. Efficient Tracking and Management: Tooling U’s Learning Management System enables manufacturers’ HR teams to monitor and track all training activities, ensuring accountability and progress evaluation.
  5. Vast Course Catalog and Innovation: Offering over 600 classes, including cutting-edge virtual reality modules, we consistently update our offerings to keep pace with evolving industry needs.

In addition to our team helping you implement these unique and tailor-made training modules, we  can also help connect you to state funding that will potentially cover the cost of most if not all of  the program for each employee.

At CIFT, we have decades of experience helping northwest Ohio manufacturers grow and compete. And as the Northwest Ohio MEP Partner, our success is measured by your performance.
