Make it a Learning Opportunity  

In the days following the shutdown of Québec’s economy on account of the Covid-19 crisis, the Québec government created the Programme Actions Concertées pour le Maintien en Emploi (PACME). This program aims to support businesses whose activities have suffered from the pandemic. With PACME, companies can obtain significant financial support towards the training and continuing education of their employees.

LIDD offers courses and expert led workshops on all aspects of supply chain management and optimisation. Our courses all aim to provide further training to warehouse workers and DC managers. As such, they qualify for the PACME program, which reimburses training fees up to $250,000.

We have experts who will train your employees to better identify ways of increasing your storage capacity and of optimizing your picking activities within your current operation. LIDD’s I.T. specialists can empower your workforce to make better, more efficient use of your WMS. Our analysts can explain what KPIs you will need to properly assess your operation’s efficiency.

Make the best of the situation: make it a learning opportunity to learn and to improve your operation’s performance.
