A More Efficient, Effective Workforce Without More Hiring

Proper Job Instruction can eliminate 80% of the most common problems related to:

  • Safety
  • Quality
  • Productivity
  • Employee Relations

Training Within Industry (TWI) helped ramp up a workforce during World War II in record speed – with outstanding results. It has been called the most underrated achievement of American 20th century industry.

A timeless and practical tool, it remains a superior training concept today – especially in the mass production setting – because it helps to facilitate greater speed to market and remove waste associated with training time.

The Key to Reinforced Job Skills

TWI applies to anyone who teaches anybody to do anything. It teaches workers more than just what to do to complete a specific task. It also reinforces how to do the job, and makes them understand why the job must be done this way. TWI’s  proven methodology for helping a worker come up to speed quickly and accurately includes:

  • showing them the important steps of the task at hand
  • reinforcing the key points related to those tasks
  • explaining the reasons why the job is done this way

Fix Skills Shortages & Cross-Training issues

We get your employees up to speed.

A skills gap exists now and will only get worse in the future. Coupled with the retirement of your most knowledgeable staff, this gap presents a predicament you may not be prepared for. TWI is a proven tool to bring new employees up to speed and transfer the current and tribal knowledge to the next generation.

Give your Management Team the Tools to Succeed

All too often good workers are promoted into supervisory roles but never given the tools or training to effectively make positive changes in their areas. The TWI training model:

  • follows a learn-and-do approach
  • ensures immediate payback and productivity improvements
  • can be applied in all work environments
  • teaches supervisors how to quickly train employees to do a job correctly, safely and conscientiously

Use it to develop your employees, supervisors, and management. They’ll do their jobs better and improve their critical thinking and problem solving skills. Over 50 Connecticut organizations – including more than 300 individuals – have completed CONNSTEP’s TWI program. Once it’s taught, it helps sustain high performance and excellence in quality.
