What were the business issues or challenges that were addressed by engaging in training?
As the result of a recent restructure, Hellermann Tyton had a mix of newly appointed Cell Leaders from external backgrounds and those who have been promoted or appointed from within. The aim was to provide an opportunity for the new Cell Leaders to develop their skills and gain a nationally-recognised qualification. The new Cell Leaders were required to focus on improving processes to improve efficiency and ensure that products are out on time.
The training they undertook:
Working with Cornwall College Business, a bespoke training programme was developed for a group of Hellermann’s Cell Leaders. The ILM Leadership Team Skills Award was tailored allowing Hellermann to select the relevant units to meet their business needs. The training also incorporated IT training.
What impact and benefits has the training had on the company?
The company operates on a 24hour shift system. To minimise any time spent away from the ‘shop floor’ the training was delivered on site and during their existing ‘down time’.
The training has developed new skills and supported the Cell Leaders to think outside the box (in the sense of seeing the wider organisational picture), plan effectively, understand the need to improve processes and efficiency within their own work area and make best use of the people in their teams.
