Designing a training program in an industrial company
- Needs assessments
- How to best achieve these objectives?
Sempermed, a company which produce medical and industrial gloves, is a subsidiary of the Semperit Group. This one is one of the most competitive companies in the international rubber and plastics industry. Sempermed is on a leading position on the European and American markets.

Did they enjoy the training? Was it a waste of their time? These are the kind of questions they had to answer. These questions can be asking verbally, or by means of feedbacks forms, immediately at the end of the training. [...]
