WRG Holly Logistics is taking part in a project that aims to help its employees – and others in the supply chain sector – upgrade their skills. Through “Stocking Up on Skills,” Conestoga College, in partnership with Douglas College in B.C., Bow Valley College in Alberta and the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council, is developing an online tool that will be available at no charge to employers across Canada. The tool, currently being tested by WRG Holly Logistics and other companies, rates users’ skills in reading, numeracy and document use, and provides personal learning plans, based on the users’ occupations or occupational goals, to build skills where they’re weak.

According to a recent release from the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council, so far, 25 WRG Holly Logistics employees have participated in the program pilot test. Each has completed an initial assessment of his or her skill levels, and is working on the lessons recommended by the program based on results. Michelle Drew, Human Resources Manager at WRG Holly Logistics and a member of the Stocking Up Program Advisory Committee, says that employees who have participated are seeing the value of the program. “The information,” she says, “is very relatable; examples and samples used in the program are from real life.” Forms and documents available for use in the program were provided by supply chain companies; they are current examples of what employees might truly come across in their work.
