Establishment of a Regional Training Centrefor a multi-national food manufacturer
Our client was expanding operations in Singapore and was keen to recruit highly skilled employees for its new production facility. However, there were few people with the necessary knowledge and skillsets to perform the prodction roles in a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant. In response, our client realized the need to train employees in-house, and took the opportunity to develop a comprehensive set of training materials for the Singapore operations, as well as for its regional facilities.
Working with our client, and speaking to numerous subject matter experts, the team defined the roles of various job functions, and mapped the core and functional competencies required for each role. These competencies were further bundled into four domains – quality, systems and processes, health and safety, and continuous improvement.
Subsequently, four curricula comprising 28 different training modules were developed. The design of the courseware sought to tailor training specifically to address the needs of target learners. To improve learning, a blend of classroom training, practical skills practice, and OJT activities were used. Videos, pictures and references to relevant current affairs were used extensively to stimulate interest and to drive home the importance and impact of the trainings.
Train-the-trainer sessions were conducted to familiarize in-house trainers with the materials, and to equip them with the foundational skills to conduct the training.
