Workforce Enablement

We Help Develop Your Most Important Asset:
Your Employees

There’s No Better Investment You Can Make

The competition for top talent is fierce. Gone are the good ole days when great employees came into your organization and stayed until they retired. Today, the median tenure for private-sector employees is at a whopping 3.8 years and considerably less in younger generations.

So how can you compete? It’s not just about offering better compensation or benefits. A lot has to do with your company culture and your investment in employee development. Origin’s workforce enablement programs will help you achieve higher levels of employee satisfaction that attract and retain top talent.

Technical Training

Companies rely heavily on technologies to help people perform better and more efficiently in their roles. Adding new tools to enhance performance is a substantial business investment. To get the most out of this investment and provide your company with a competitive edge, you need to train individuals to use them.

Partner with Origin for Technical Training Programs that Demonstrate Measurable Results.

At Origin, technical training is not a one size fits all approach. Users will have different uses for the technology that need to be addressed. By fully understanding these differences, we can focus on the specific skills and knowledge required to perform better in each respective role. Our technical training programs have been proven effective in lowering production costs and errors and improving productivity so clients can achieve considerable returns on their technology investments.

Technical Training Initiatives

Process Training

Your processes are defined as the series of actions individuals need to follow in their daily routines to ensure consistency, quality, and safety and reduce costly errors. As important as it is to get right, many organizations struggle to achieve compliance.

Your Processes are Origin’s Expertise.

How can we be experts in your processes? At Origin, we take the time to examine your processes and roles and what’s driving non-compliance. We identify your must-have vs. nice-to-have tasks and review for redundancies and content overload. We then recommend ways to streamline, standardize, automate, and simplify the workflow. Upon analyzing and assessing your processes, we devise interactive training programs, performance support tools, and simulations that reinforce understanding and lead to compliance.
