At SEA-LECT Plastics we have long-term employees who carry a disproportionate amount of the weight when it comes to keeping things running smoothly on the production floor. They are good; we couldn’t run our plant without them. These key employees have often learned their craft through years of experience. That is the way “training” has been done in the plastics industry for years, even decades. However, this model is becoming outdated. There are new, very cost-effective training technologies, and we are taking advantage of them. It no longer takes years of on-the-job experience to become a proficient injection molder, for example. What used to take years to learn can now be taught in months.
To help our employees go from minimal injection molding experience to being accomplished, scientific molders, we use a blended learning model. Our model incorporates interactive on-line training, injection molding machine simulator lessons, and hands-on instruction.
