Managing Skilled Labor Issues

Having a trained and motivated staff is essential for running a fully optimized lab, yet finding them is a problem facing you and all of your peers.

Every day, you are challenged by:

  • Staff turnover
  • The need to provide professional development opportunities
  • Pressure to improve lab performance
  • A constantly changing regulatory environment
  • New technologies that require additional training

To help you meet these challenges, we have designed a full range of training courses suited to all levels and posts that will enable you to:

  • Improve staff efficiency and performance at the workbench
  • Boost staff motivation, morale and commitment
  • Empower staff to play a larger role in overall lab performance and continuous improvement
  • Flexible training & education programs

We’ve designed our program this way to ensure that you receive a custom solution that is specific to your lab challenges – This is not a one-size-fits-all approach! You and your staff will train with our specialists on a combined learning approach to provide you with your choice of classroom sessions or distance learning opportunities (e-learning and webinars).We can also provide you with a combination of the two, for easy accessibility and scheduling that fits your unique needs.

These testimonials, gathered at the 2011 Lab Quality Confab, reveal that lab managers are worried about loss of critical staff.

One VP of operations for a lab in New York State said the shortage of new staff is not only a problem because of the backlog it creates, it’s also an enormous loss of experience and lab acumen.

“Training new staff is a huge problem, but it’s not the whole problem. The real tragedy is that we are not passing on the wealth of knowledge from our retiring senior staff to the next generation. How can you replace this?”
