Exploring The Future - The Final Product

This past Monday, Spectrum hosted its last Chippewa County Explorer Program (CCEP) event for the year. 
The students received their final products and were able to “unveil them.” They reviewed the Bill of Materials and the many details that go into making the product, along with the costs. They learned how the final costs for a project can change once you start making more of a certain product by looking at material pricing, increasing volume of what is being built, efficiency set-up times, etc. 

Laurie Klomstad, Human Resource Manager at Spectrum, then spoke to the group about what it’s like to work at Spectrum. She introduced the concept of the Corporate Culture and what that means to the organization and the employees who work there. She also discussed Diversity and why it is important in the workplace.

Exploring the Future - Sales, Assembly, Packaging, and Shipping

This past Monday, Spectrum hosted its second to last Chippewa County Explorer Program (CCEP) event for the year. The training this week was at the Johnson Street building and was lead by Laurie Reardon, Aimee Sullivan, and Denise Parkhurst.

Laurie Reardon, a Human Resource Specialist at Spectrum, spoke about how to apply for a job and how to present yourself during the interview. The group played Employ-ability Skills Bingo, where they had to see what characteristics they had, such good manners, good work ethic, eye contact, good writing skills, having a solid hand shake, etc. They also had to see what areas they needed to work on. The group also completed an Employee Misconduct Bingo, where they hopefully didn’t have any characteristics, like missing work without calling in, having inappropriate social media posts, rudeness, laziness, internet browsing or texting during work, etc.
