JOHN HINDMAN MANAGER OF LEARNING SERVICES | TUXPERIENCE 2014
Do you have a world-class workforce?

John Hindman, manager of Learning Services at Tooling U-SME has worked with hundreds of manufacturers over the last twenty years to note vast differences with the way world-class companies manage and train compared to those that fall short of this distinction. In his article, 5 Best Practices for Building a High Performance Workforce, John details his observations to help other organizations determine how they can improve their practices and achieve world-class status.

Five best practices used by world-class companies to build a high-performing workforce:

  1. Get senior management buy-in.
  2. Determine performance requirements for each position.
  3. Use a competency model.
  4. Develop a training solution based on required competencies.
  5. Measure the success of the program.

2014 tuXperience: World-class companies share their secrets for training success.

“What’s not in the metrics is the motivation this training gives to your team members. The accomplishment at the end – they are so proud of themselves.”

It’s this kind of candid sharing that makes tuXperience so unique. It brings together some of the most successful companies in the world – to listen and share their workforce training successes and lessons learned. The 2014 event featured eleven speakers from a wide range of manufacturing companies with equally diverse workforce challenges. They each had a unique story to tell about how they worked with Tooling U-SME to create the training programs that met their needs and resulted in their world-class success.

For those who didn’t have the opportunity to attend tuXperience, we’ve posted the presentations online, along with several case studies. Simply click on the link below.

WHAT’S TRENDING
Human Capital Drives Manufacturing Competitiveness

COMPETENCY FRAMEWORK
The term "Human Capital" was coined in the 1960s by Nobel-Prize winning economist, Theodore W. Shultz, and later popularized by American economist Gary Becker.

Today, world-class organizations still abide by this idea that people are the ultimate resource when it comes to building a winning company. Yet not all companies recognize the competitive advantage of this precious resource.

With 64 percent of manufacturers saying that productivity losses are a result of a skills gap and 56 percent saying this has impacted their company's ability to grow, it is more important than ever to cultivate a culture of learning.
