Are you an
Operations or Distribution Manager, Warehouse Manager, Fleet Manager?
DO ANY OF THESE CONCERNS SOUND FAMILIAR?
Well, you’ll be happy to know there is a simple and effective solution available that works with any WMS to address all of your warehouse staff training concerns.
At KMI Learning we can help you jumpstart your warehouse staff training and ensure it is tracked efficiently. We’ve done it for many others and we can do it for you.
Here’s how . . .
We’ve found that typically more than 80% of picking and shipping errors happen because of 4 or 5 root causes. Custom online training that directly attacks those causes supporting a communications campaign drives error numbers down within the first week of deployment.
Effective warehouse staff training can have an immediate effect on your bottom line by bringing new hires (even temps) up to speed more quickly. Warehouse managers report to us that they have been able to shave 2-5 days off of the traditional peer-based training they formerly used. And, since you peer trainers are often your best employees you save even more by keeping them on the floor doing what they do best.
KMI can provide your company with an “LMS” (Learning Management System) that will provide web-based warehouse staff training to your employees on a variety of topics. Web based training is easy to implement because KMI hosts everything for you on our servers.
Our LMS can track every training event that occurs in your building whether it is online or in a classroom and track it any way you like. Also we can automatically remind you when training needs to be renewed or updated.
At KMI we have developed warehouse staff training for thousands of warehouse employees in the key areas of safety, productivity, quality, and equipment certification. With our experience in Operational training, if you have an area of need we have probably already helped another client solve it.
We have helped many companies train their employees on important safety topics such as lift truck training, battery changing, proper lifting techniques, safety harnesses, conveyor safety and many more. An organized and documented safety training program helps reduce workplace accidents and proves to OSHA your commitment to safety.
Delivery drivers are some of the most at risk team members in your organization. From DOT requirements to HazMat training to safe driving and customer service; they need updated and ongoing training. KMI can provide on line courses specific to drivers and can track the training and send reminders when retraining is due.
It’s surprisingly easy. KMI has the knowledge and systems already in place to get you started quickly. Many of the questions and challenges that have you concerned or confused have been solved for other customers in your industry. KMI can help you start slowly while your employees get used to web based training, then increase as they become comfortable. It can be completely scalable.
KMI Learning enabled a leading medical products distributor to reduce on the job accidents by 50% while improving retention and productivity.
Here are some testimonials from real KMI customers.
“KMI training programs have changed our culture. We used to train manually in the lunchroom but were never certain that our employees understood the topic. Now that they train on line and take a quiz at the end to confirm they understand the content”
“Our employees have really embraced on line training. We have received many positive and appreciative comments from them about how much better it is”
“We really didn’t have any formal training program, it was mostly OJT and word of mouth. KMI helped us formalize the training we were already doing and now we track everything”
“One of our employees was seriously injured doing something they should not have been doing. During the OSHA investigation we were able to prove the employee was properly trained and OSHA closed the case with no penalty to our company.

Let's Get Started
Let’s talk – we can begin discussing your concepts and needs on our first phone call. We’ll review existing courses that demonstrate possibilities that meet your ideas, and even give you access to further review KMI’s course building skills. It’s time to take the next step together.
In 2007 our client, the Director of Operations of one of the nation’s largest medical products distribution company, brought in KMI Learning as the final and critical part of a multi-year project to standardize operating procedures and policies across the company. Prior to this initiative the company’s 28 warehouses had done things 28 (or so) different ways. Things like safety, productivity, employee orientation and training in general were controlled (or not) at the local level. As you might guess the results were spotty.
The implementation of warehouse management software and the development of a defined mission statement were important steps along the way. Most importantly, the Director recognized that the employees needed to really internalize these changes. To make that happen, he decided to implement a structured training program.
Enter KMI Learning and our partner Kibler and Associates . Working closely with our client, we implemented that training program built around powerful, engaging online content that taught skills, proper procedures and safety. All of the training reinforced the mission statement and the value to the employees of changing
The learning strategy is rounded out with KMI’s LMS that provides a platform for delivery of all training as well as incorporated custom tracking, reporting, notification and certification.
The Online Training Academy immediately became a central part of the overall program:
Accidents on the job were reduced by 50% within the first year.
The company is fully OSHA compliant
The company is now retaining its best workers, verifiable through their training records.
Workers are learning their jobs faster with savings of 2-5 days in getting new employees up to speed.
Testing is now uniform across the company with mandatory passing scores.
