PEP (Practice Execution Program)
Plant Performance Learning Services
ITT’s Plant Performance Learning Services (PPLS) offers training solutions for optimizing industrial plant performance to customers and distributors around the world. The variety of courses offered targets different levels of plant personnel for a customer with a goal to increase in-plant reliability competency. Our needs assessment process allows us to identify the potential gap between the current skills/knowledge and the desired level of performance. The gaps are used to define training objectives and develop courses specific to customer needs. Subject matter experts are trained in delivering the courses that support a learner centered training environment. The goal of PPLS is to provide training to generate revenue that positively impacts growth and profitability.
Industrial Certification and Training (ICT) Program
The Industrial Certification and Training program was a collaborative initiative of the Westcott Community Center and MACNY, The Manufacturers Association, as well as over 15 other collaborating organizations, to provide training for emerging and transitioning workers living in poverty, leading to industry recognized credentials and jobs. Participants were recruited through community based organizations and the courts. Eligible participants received orientation, intensive case management, employment readiness skills, and job specific training. At the conclusion of the training program, case managers assisted participants in the job search process with partners providing opportunities to meet potential employers and get hired.
Improving the Climate and Culture in the Transportation Center
The North Syracuse Central School District Board and District Administration made a commitment to begin to change the environment and climate within the Transportation Center. Six areas of importance were identified that, if addressed, could begin to have a positive impact on morale among employees. These focus areas were: Respect, Expectations, Communications, Fairness, Recognition and Teamwork. The district made a substantive, and visible, effort to provide resources for employees to take ownership of their morale and be influential in the shape of their future work relationships: to create their own culture.
College While You Work
Because the clinical laboratory is not as viewable to the public as some careers, and with an exodus of healthcare workers to retirement, the clinical laboratory has been facing a shortage of technologists. Laboratory Alliance took it upon itself to make its own technologists by recruiting college biology and chemistry graduates into healthcare. In collaboration with Broome Community College, these graduates were provided technical training while working at Laboratory Alliance. Laboratory Alliance provided daily on-line study time and hands-on laboratory experience.
