Faced with a competitive market, this Indiana machine maker knows the importance of having well-trained, productive employees at all levels. Recently, the firm completed multiple projects toward this end. One project focused on the firm’s technical leadership with ERP system training. Other projects helped managers by providing them with everyday skills via a Frontline Leadership course at a local college. These projects were just what the firm needed to “…..develop and strengthen our middle managers.” Combined, these projects provided high impact to the manufacturer, at a relatively low cost (a total of $10K, with TAAF paying 50%).
