A Manufacturing Essentials Certificate pilot for Production Workers was implemented in 2016 at Kingsmill Foods with 9 front-line employees. Following training implementation, all managers at Kingsmill agreed that the training was a worthwhile investment for the company. Managers also reported a high-level of improvement in team efficiency, overall engagement in the workplace and product quality/reduction of errors. For EMC-CMN, the goal of the Pilot was to gather employer/employee feedback and ultimately adapt a solution for a national audience.

2016 was a milestone year for EMC-CMN to introduce a new way of collecting and communicating critical Labour Market Intelligence (LMI) for the Canadian manufacturing sector; The results speak for themselves: our national reach has been significantly expanded with new partnerships and innovative resources for all manufacturing regions across Canada.

Congratulations Fall 2016 CMN Harvard Supervisory Certificate Program Graduates!
Once again, we have had another successful CMN – Harvard Supervisory Certificate Program, which involved Supervisors, Managers, Team Leads and Team Associates receiving their certification during the recent Fall 2016 session. By completing this certification, the participants will be able to make such a positive difference in their career paths, day-to-day responsibilities, and will be able to contribute to the success of their company. Further, these outstanding and successful participants will be able to positively affect those they lead and work with by directly applying what they have learned throughout this program.
The Canadian Manufacturing Network and Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium are excited about the opportunity to assist future participants and manufacturers with this great CMN – Harvard Supervisory Program throughout 2017.

In our last blog, we discussed that 30% of the participating manufacturers (data from all Canada) are not investing in training activities and when they do invest, the average is in the range of $350 per employee and per year. So, what are the top reasons why manufacturers are investing or not in training activities?
