This month, Wieland Diversified was one of 72 companies across the state to be awarded a Workforce Training Fund grant. The grant, awarded through the Commonwealth Corporation, will provide customized training for the majority of our employees over the next 6 months. As a small business, we are grateful to have received this grant because this training will allow us to grow and excel by investing in our employees futures.
One of the major drivers of applying for this grant was a growing need to have Six Sigma trained employees – now we have the opportunity to train 8 employees at once. This training will be completed in March 2015, with all 8 employees graduating with Green Belts. Many other employees will get the chance to brush up on their computer and Microsoft applications skills, allowing us to be more effective and efficient as a whole. We look forward to beginning our training soon.
