Power’s Country Express shows benefit of training
TLISC points to transport operator’s success as reason for investing in staff training.
Transport businesses are now clearly identifying the returning value from training investments, CEO of the Transport Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC) Robert Adams has told ATN.
Inspired by the award-winning success of Bendigo-based Power’s Country Express, Adams says every organisation is able to improve its processes and business outcomes through effective training.
"They (Power’s Country Express) are a great example for the industry in the approach that they used," Adams says.
"The level of commitment they’ve had to their people has been great for them, but it’s also contributed back to the business."
The TLISC is responsible for building, developing and delivering standard qualifications for the industry.
The group also presents at a number of conferences, showcasing best practice and training for logistics and transport providers.
Adams says its course offerings are evolving with the modern challenges facing the industry, but every training plan it develops is different.
"You really need to customise a training solution for your business and staff," he says.
Adams says there is no easy solution to a lot of the challenges facing the industry right now, but skilled and engaged staff are an important step to success.
