A large manufacturing organization engaged in “in-sourcing” most of its IT work asked Learning Tree to develop and deliver a range of IT training for new hires who possessed varying amounts of real-world experience in the job roles they were hired to fill.
Learning Tree’s intensive, hands-on instructor-led courses were employed to enhance the practical skill levels of the new employees so that they could “hit the ground running” in their new jobs.
Learning Tree’s ‘Online Skills Assessment Tool’ was used to determine the skill and knowledge levels of the new hires in order to place them on the training path that best fit their skills enhancement needs.
The ‘Online Skills Assessment Tool’ was also used to objectively measure post-training growth in knowledge, identify high-potential employees, and assist in the organization’s new hire process.
