Training Within Industry (TWI)
Effective Skills to Attract, Train
and Retain Employees
VMEC and the VT Department of Labor have partnered to help employers attract, train and retain employees by offering Strengthening Supervisor-Employee Relationships with TWI Job Relations (JR) and Accelerating Effective Employee Training with TWI Job Instruction (JI) courses. Both of these offerings, delivered remotely, can help manufacturers who are facing workforce challenges caused or made worse by the global pandemic.
We offered two complimentary, introductory webinars recently; check out this 19 minute recording in case you missed it, wish to view again or share with colleagues. 
 
Strengthening Supervisor-Employee Relationships with TWI Job Relations (JR)
 
Monday - Friday, September 21 - 25 
1:00 - 3:30 pm each day 
Zoom meeting 
$125 per person, limited to 8 people 
 
TWI Job Relations addresses one of the most challenging parts of the supervisor's job - establishing and maintaining good supervisor-employee relations and dealing with problems when they arise. Training and coaching supervisors to use this proven, simple, and repeatable methodology allows a company to:
  • Create an inclusive work environment where people of all backgrounds and experiences contribute to their full potential
  • Build trust and collaboration needed for continuous improvement
  • Have a consistent and coachable methodology for dealing with people problems
  • and much more 
This workshop is ideal for supervisors and managers that are new to leadership or want a refresher on these skills.  Leaders at all levels in the organization can benefit from this training as they learn a common language and methods and coach and support each other in applying the skills learned. 
 
Note: Participants must have a camera and microphone in order to participate in the course.
 
 
Accelerating Effective Employee Training
with TWI Job Instruction (JI)

1:00 - 3:30 pm each day 
Zoom meeting 
$125 per person, limited to 8 people 
 
AND
 
Tuesdays and Thursdays, November 5, 10, 12, 17 and 19
9:00 - 11:30 am each day 
Zoom meeting 
$125 per person, limited to 8 people 
Implementing a training system using the simple and repeatable Training Within Industry methods allows a company to address immediate challenges, such as:
  • Plans for existing employees to build skills and flexibility through cross training
  • Identifying risks and mitigating exposure in areas that might be shut down if a key employee were unavailable
  • Identifying  areas where staffing is needed and plans for new hire training
  • and much more 
This is a Train-the-Trainer workshop. The objective of the workshop is to train employees how to teach someone else a job using the TWI-JI method.  Knowing how to do something does not mean that we know how to teach someone else how to do it, or how to track their progress.  Instructors need to clearly convey each element of a job task and why it needs to be done correctly. 
 
Note: Participants must have a camera and microphone in order to participate in the course.
