Let’s eat cake and celebrate!

This milestone provides an opportunity to honor those individuals whose unwavering support, energetic spirit, and trustworthy guidance helped us achieve this important landmark.  It also allows us to reflect on where we’ve been and reaffirm our commitment for the future.

First, I would like to express my deepest appreciation to you all, our loyal customers, for your continuing support.  I especially want to recognize those customers who have been with us over the long haul for each and every one of our twenty years.  In a world filled with so many choices, I thank you for continually choosing us.

I also would like to recognize the efforts and talents of our loyal employees, both past and present. Thanks to you our company is now recognized as a distinguished provider of innovative selection and training solutions, and we are making an impact on a global scale.

We work hard for our jobs or businesses, but there must be something more that innately drives us. I believe that meaning is presented when we set the foundation of the business to improve the quality of life and make the world a better and safer place to live and work.  This is the basis upon our company’s existence and purpose.  And this will always be worth sharing and celebrating.

Article by: Mike Spurlock, Sr. Consultant

How often have you wished that incidents would not have happened or that your operators might have recognized the early signs just a few moments sooner or responded just a little bit quicker? How often have you wondered if things might operate better if only your operators were trained a little bit better?

These are complicated questions to think about. If you want to get a quick start to focus on the high bar and make improvements, we are offering a free 1-hour webinar for our clients.

This is not specific to any type of operation (refinery, pipeline or platform) and could apply to any operator job. During this hour, we will engage your webinar attendees in a quick, off-the-top-of-head, self-assessment of your training process by helping you self-score your process against a benchmark scale and help you identify top priority gaps. Attendees will be encouraged to report out their conclusions and a brief group discussion will ensue. Attendees will be able to start down the path to focus on several priority items for improved training to improve operations.

Where did this assessment come from? JPS has experience looking at training programs at many different locations and has developed ideas around best practices based on what we have seen. We have boiled this into a list of questions along with a rating scale to make it easy for attendees to rate their own program against practices that seem to work.

Here are a couple of priority improvement gaps identified from recent self-assessments we have facilitated:

  • “We don’t do any formal scenario training.”
  • “We don’t do refresher training.”
  • “We need to select better trainers.”
  • “Our training materials are not organized in one place and readily accessible to all as a reference.”

If you are interested, please contact us at 1-877-ASK-4-JPS or sales@jps-usa.com to schedule a free webinar. End of Article
