The Challenge

Detroit Diesel needed assistance in fulfilling their annual goal of training for management. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, as well as cutting their training budget due to loses in revenue, continuing annual training was a difficult tasks. They were looking to provide training for several dozen employees at a low cost and in a safe and healthy environment.
The OSU South Centers MEP staff and the trainer they provided was very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding of our situation. They were very creative in finding a solution to our problem. I would recommend any manufacturer take the time to work with them and to take advantage of their assistance.
— Holly Osborn, HR Manager

MEP's Role

The Ohio State University South Centers MEP, part of the Ohio MEP and the MEP National Network™, was able to provide a one day Leadership Training virtually. Providing the training virtually helped keep the cost low and avoided putting anyone, including the trainer, in a high risk or high exposure situation. Although webinars and virtual events were nothing new, completing a specific training that was needed and sought after by a company was a new endeavor for both parties.
