Free Spanish training webinars to be offered later this month

Published on 09 April 2020

Progressive Dairy magazine and Alltech On-Farm Support have partnered to offer Spanish virtual-training sessions for employees during these difficult times. The webinars will be led by Jorge Delgado, director of Alltech’s training and talent development program – T2R.

“Now, more than ever, it is important to train our employees, not only from a business point of view, but to make them feel relevant. Dairies are an essential industry that feed this nation,” Delgado says. “We also have to motivate one of our most valuable resources, our employees, during this unprecedent time, by feeding their drive to comprehend.”

Progressive Dairy has previously worked with Jorge Delgado on the development of printed training materials. Editor Walt Cooley says now is a good time to offer virtual training for employees.

“As we all become more accustomed to virtual learning in these difficult times, now is also a good time for employees to have access to such tools as well. They can join by cell phone or computer, during a break in work or during their time off. We encourage all who are interested in participating to use appropriate social-distancing measures.”

Three Spanish language webinars will be held during the end of April and beginning of May. See dates, times and registration info below.
