Buzzi Training Grant Program
Representatives of the Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas Board presented a Workforce Investment Fund grant of $38,000 to Buzzi Unicem USA Maryneal plant. This non-profit government organization was created to provide funds for developing training and upgrading programs of employees. Buzzi Unicem USA will use this grant to train thirty-six employees. Training will enhance managers and supervisors by assisting them in increasing their productivity through better communication and teamwork. Buzzi Unicem USA is proud to have achieved this ambitious objective that will allow its employees to be trained on topics that are important, albeit different from the usual subjects.
Training started in February 2009 and is conducted by the Texas State Technical College of Sweetwater. To date, the topics have included “Effective Listening Skills”, “Electronic Communications”, “The Basic Principles for a Collaborative Workplace”, “Sexual Harassment/EEO - Equal Employment Opportunity - and Professional Ethics”, “Violence in the Workplace”, and “The Leader in Each of Us”. Training will continue for the remainder of the year.
