Education/Training Panel Discussion

Monday, March 2 10:15 am - 11:00 am
Opening General Session

Training is a popular buzzword in our industry today, one that most industry professionals would assert is an area of opportunity for organizational growth. Many organizations are challenged with a shortage of people with higher technical skills on baking equipment, and yet when it comes down to it, training is often the first to get pushed aside when other issues arise.  

The purpose of this panel discussion is to advance the baking industry in its knowledge of effective education of its employees. Our panel of experts will share their valuable experience with employee training practices, which includes:

  • Understanding the true costs of turnover and the impact of poor training on a production facility
  • Recognizing the mutual benefit of proper training for an enduring baker-supplier relationship
  • Creating a plan for access to talent
  • Recruiting and retaining skilled manufacturing/maintenance personnel
  • Developing a training program to fit your organization’s needs
  • Finding the right blend of learning tools for your organization

This panel discussion will provide you with knowledge and tools to demonstrate to your organization that an investment in training will provide a positive ROI and improve the profitability of the business.

Moderator: Monica Kline, The EnSol Group
Panelists: Rowdy Brixey, Bimbo Bakeries USA; Jerry Van Oort, Russell Associates; Holly Mockus, Alchemy Systems
