The Greater Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce will offer a “Job Instructions” seminar on Nov. 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon at The Rahall Room, 200 W. Washington Street, Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. There is a cost, and lunch will be provided.
This is a collaboration between the Chamber of Commerce and the West Virginia Manufacturing Extension Partnership. This is an excellent opportunity for any company that is looking for ways to meet the demands of developing a flexible workforce. This seminar can be used to train both experienced workers looking to take on a new role in a company, or to train new employees coming on-board. Job instruction can also be used to create a training plan to ensure a well cross-trained workforce, and to also teach people to think systematically about the job.
Throughout the morning session, attendees will learn how to break down a job into logical steps that are easy to understand, and provide the most effective way to train new and existing employees. In addition, learning how to deliver the information in a manner that ensures it is not only taught, but is thoroughly understood and retained by trainees. Outcomes of the seminar will be reduction in downtime, increase productivity, fewer accidents, improve employer/employee relations, among others.
If interested in attending this seminar, please contact Amber McHale, executive director, for a link to register for the event through the West Virginia University site. Seats are limited and registration ends Oct. 31.
