Workforce Challenge

Therafin Corporation in Mokena, IL, manufactures customized medical equipment. The company supplies thousands of products to the rehabilitation market all over the world. Therafin has become known industry-wide for its innovation, quality and willingness to meet current needs in a difficult marketplace. In developing a training program for its employees, Therafin determined what type of training would most impact their bottom line and was readily available.

Workforce Solution

Through incumbent worker funding, Therafin provided training in three areas. One area of training provided employees with an understanding of their end users' medical conditions and needs. Employees gained an understanding of how mobility and comfort can be significantly impacted through adjustments in the seating system.

A second area of training addressed maintenance and use of sewing equipment, which was formerly outsourced.

A third area of training, educating staff on how to use newly acquired software, has resulted in significant cost savings and increased efficiency. Company personnel can now generate customized reports and documentation needed by customers rather than outsourcing this function.

Outcomes & Benefits

Todd Fink, President of Therafin Corporation said, “The incumbent worker funding allowed us to offer training for our workers that we could not otherwise have afforded. The process of applying for funds forced us to define what we really needed in terms of improving our workforce’s skills and what would benefit our operation the most. This training opportunity greatly impacted the skill level of our staff. It streamlined the processes, and most importantly [helps us meet] the unique needs of customers."
