B&&B Molders' training in the news
B&B Molders LLC, a Mishawaka, Ind., injection molder, has stressed employee training for years. Today the emphasis paid off with a nice feature story in the South Bend Tribune. The story quotes company President Britt Murphey saying that B&B has spent more than $100,000 on training and work force development since 2004, and that 59 percent of his workers have taken classes through the company's "Pay for Knowledge" program. The program gives workers raises as they take course, plus one-time bonuses of $1,000 for an associate degree, $1,500 for a bachelor's and $2,000 for a master's. "If they improve their skills, they are more valuable to us," Murphey told the Tribune. B&B has stressed training all the way from the beginning, when the company was spun off from motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson Inc. in 1996. It's nice to see B&B get some attention -- and this offers yet another good example of the kind of story that many local molders can share with their own local newspapers.
