Workforce Challenge

Over 10 years ago, Luis began his career with GKI Foods as an operator. Through the years, he became the Area Lead’s right hand man. When his supervisor left unexpectedly, he arose to the challenge. Although Luis keeps going above and beyond, he lacks supervisory skills. He was able to report well on his lines, but he needed to improve on the coaching and documentation aspect of management.

Workforce Solution

When GKI Foods became an LLC, they noticed many of their staff were in the same position as Luis. GKI wanted to give their area leads the tools, resources and knowledge to handle all aspects that might come up in their departments. Through award of the Skilled Trades Training Fund Grant, the company was able to invest in supervisor training. Luis was able to attend the training.

Outcomes & Benefits

Since the training, Luis has coached a few of his employees on resolving conflict. He has also provided the necessary documentation for his department. Since implementing his new skills, Luis was promoted to oversee a second department. The company cannot be more proud of the advancements he has made in just the last six months!
