Training and Development

Believing that people are Phillips-Medisize’s most valuable resource, training and development is encouraged, supported, and required at every level. To support this belief, Phillips-Medisize has a learning center in each facility where e-learning takes place and a stand-alone training facility where external trainers are brought in for specific educational needs. Relationships with local technical colleges, universities, and specialty vendors keep education close and easily accessible when gaps arise. Training in areas such as mold tech development, our Rotational Program, and internships - in a variety of disciplines - offer Phillips-Medisize's people numerous opportunities to expand their careers internally. To promote development, Phillips-Medisize also offers internal training with an in-house training team that trains employees on expected technical and soft skills. We also support external trainings, workshops, certificates, and seminars. Engineers are expected to keep current and ahead of industry trends with a structured development matrix. We use internal subject matter experts as well as industry experts to cross train and promote innovation. With Phillips-Medisize's educational assistance program, our people can receive financial reimbursement for university or technical classes to advance their career. This commitment and belief in our people ensures we have the best-trained workforce in the industry for our customers.
