We have just had the pleasure of working with Print company Prinovis in Liverpool who have given their employees the route to progress from the shop floor to the "Number 2 Printer" position. This is not only a step up in skills but also a step up in pay. All that they have to do is achieve the level 2 "Machine Printing" NVQ whilst on the job and they are guaranteed a promotion as well as gaining the recognised qualification.
This fantastic initiative was capped off by all 8 employees completing and achieving in a timely manner because of a well thought out co-delivery strategy between Prinovis and ourselves. This strategy is an on-going method to upskill the workforce so that they never encounter production problems and increase flexibility, as more people are now multi-skilled and so can adapt to the ever-changing world of supply and demand within print.
"We are very proud of the hard work put in by our employees as well as seeing the benefits of work-based training firsthand."
