In April, Graphius welcomed 18 new employees, who are following a training program in our printing and bookbinding firm. Two months later, we evaluate the ‘dual learning’ or ‘workplace learning’ programs with David Benoit, marketing and communications officer at GRAFOC.

As you read in our previous report on dual learning, GRAFOC and VDAB set up a pilot project to integrate new co-workers into graphics companies. Since Syntra West’s training program for ‘print and print finishing’ has disappeared last year, it has become increasingly difficult to recruit the right people.

David Benoit shone his light for Graphius on the dual learning. We have collected some of his findings for you.

“Dual learning means you learn in the workplace, hence the term workplace learning. We focus on two target groups: pupils and students, and job seekers.”

“Graphius is one of 20 companies that have been chosen to participate in our pilot project.”

“When I look at Graphius’ machinery, I note that print finishing has also become very important. But there is no separate training for print finishing. Luckily, we are noticing a positive trend. Today, many students deliberately choose print finishing.”

“The profile of the perfect employee shares the values and vision of the company. It is in the interest of the atmosphere throughout the company that hired people match the company vision.”

“The knowledge and experience of over-55s can be very valuable to a company. Grafoc is always looking for the perfect mix between youth and experience. The ratio between old and young has to be properly balanced. It is very good to see Graphius is keeping an eye on the balance of the age pyramid.”
