An essential skills training program was launched at FundyPros Specialty Construction firm in New Brunswick to help build the capacity of supervisors within the organization by supporting them to develop the skills needed to succeedin their jobs. To create a positive learning environment that would foster an appetite for continuous learning, founder and president Mario Allain engaged employees at all stages of the program's development and implementation. The training program helped each supervisor to develop a variety of essential skills required for their position including writing and computer use. By including familiar workplace documents in the training, participants were able to see how what they were learning related to their tasks and responsibilities on the job.
