CPISC Releases New HR Reports
The Canadian Printing Industries Sector Council (CPISC) last week released its Production Support Skill Standards, which includes a new series of occupational profiles about what an employee should know to do their job.
CPISC’s new reports, designed to assist with recruitment and training, are specifically geared toward the job functions of estimators, sales representatives, production coordinators, and customer service representatives.
“Employees in production support have a significant impact on workflow, quality control and the bottom line,” said Project Chair Brian Ellis. “These new standards and occupational profiles will ensure that we have a better-trained, more adaptable workforce that will help our industry prosper.”
These latest Skill Standards are part of CPISC’s Skills for the Future project, which has produced standards and profiles for nine other occupations. The non-profit organization states it is currently working on another set of reports for production managers, with a release date scheduled for 2011.
“Standards enable an employer to assess the skills of new and current employees, helping them to identify what training and development is most needed to help employees perform at their best,” said CPISC Co-Chair Jeff Ekstein. “They are also being used for curriculum development in post-secondary and training institutions.”
CPISC’s Executive Director, Marie Eveline, added, “These standards and profiles were developed and validated by the industry, for the industry. We have heard so many success stories surrounding the use of our previously released standards and are anxious to get this new suite into the industry’s hands.”
The Production Support Skill Standards and Occupational Profiles are available for download on CPISC’s Website.
