When Stradis Healthcare, a supplier of surgical packs and medical kits, outgrew its old headquarters a year and a half ago, it relocated to a larger space in Peachtree Corners. The move allowed the 18-year-old business room for its rapidly expanding business. The move also meant it would be adding to its workforce.
An Atlanta Regional Commission program, called WorkSource Atlanta Regional provided substantial reimbursement of the costs in training of this increasing staff. The program is also designed to improve the competitiveness of an employer.
The employee training program was designed to meet the company’s needs. Stradis collaborated with WorkSource Atlanta Regional to modernize and integrate several organizational processes. For an entire year, the company committed to intensive employee training that helped to improve customer experience, making the system more attractive to its customers.
Tax-payer funded by the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, the re-training was made possible through the WorkSource’s Incumbent Worker Training program which is designed to improve the skills of employees and an employer’s competitiveness.
