Workforce Success Story Submitted By:
San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board

Vocational Improvement Program, Inc.

Workforce Challenge

Vocational Improvement Program, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities by providing them with meaningful work opportunities to achieve personal growth and independence. Through VIP Solutions, the program's fulfillment, transportation and logistics and storage company, it employs adults with disabilities. Jeff Rogina, warehouse manager of VIP Solutions was leading the process of updating the company's software and inventory systems. The upgrade was an important undertaking that impacted the company's growth as well as its ability to serve and provide jobs.

Workforce Solution

"While I was planning for the upgrade, I received the notice from the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board about its process improvement program through Deisell Consultants, LLC," Rogina said. "It was the perfect solution at the perfect time."

Rogina worked with Deisell Consultants, LLC, to review the company's existing spreadsheets and inventory systems to create a streamlined and efficient process.

"Our clients include Kmart, Sears and Ace Hardware," Jeff said. "When we can improve all facets of our services, we increase our customer retention and become an attractive solution to new clients."

Outcomes & Benefits

After the six-month project with Deisell Consultants, LLC, VIP Solutions landed a project with Kmart and are looking forward to expanding into a new facility.

"When we grow, we can create new jobs for disabled adults," Rogina said. "The results from the process improvement program through the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board will benefit us for years to come."
