Awards for Excellence in Workplace Literacy, Medium Business Winner, 2005: Upgrading Employee Skills to Meet Corporate Standards - Technocell Canada, A Felix Schoeller Group Company (2005)

The Conference Board of Canada's education and learning case studies series examines outstanding education and lifelong learning programs and initiatives. This case study highlights the training program in place at Technocell Canada, a subsidiary of the German group Felix Schoeller Holding, the world’s largest producer of photographic and decor paper. In 2001, Technocell purchased a paper plant in Drummondville, Quebec. The company soon discovered that the current workforce at this plant not only lacked the necessary production knowledge for the work but also lacked basic skills. To address this problem, Technocell developed a workplace training program that focused on basic skills, communications, teamwork, and health and safety. This case study looks at various aspects of this successful workplace learning program, including the program's development, challenges, keys to success and benefits for both employees and employers.
