Dee Hawkins, President of A Better Answer Call Centers
We talked with Dee Hawkins, and several members of the company’s sales team. They told us about their experiences with the sales training that is part of Russell Associates’ Core Content Library.
Brad Prange, Safety Manager for ConAgra Foods.
ConAgra Foods, Lakeville worked with Russell Associates to create a Computer-Based Interactive Training program that would make the orientation process more efficient, reducing the amount of time and resources needed to orientate new employees.
We introduce you to Joseph Hannehan, president and founder of "Hannehan Logistics" and his Training Manager, Gil Jones. For illustrative purposes, the company is fictional; however the training dilemmas they face are very real and very common. Watch and listen as they ponder how to effectively train a high volume of employees dispersed over several locations. The problems they solve may be your own!
