    Stradis Healthcare, Employees Benefit from ARC Training Program 

    Atlanta Regional Commission Plan offsets cost of employee training.
     
    PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA, Aug. 22, 2018 – When Stradis Healthcare, a leader in custom surgical packs and medical kits, outgrew its old headquarters a year and a half ago, it relocated to much larger space in Peachtree Corners. The move allowed the 18-year-old business room for its rapidly expanding company. The move also meant it would be adding to its workforce.
     
    Training new employees can be costly. Fortunately, Stradis’ business leaders were able to tap into an Atlanta Regional Commission program, called WorkSource Atlanta Regional which provides substantial reimbursement of the costs in upgrading the skills of the staff. The program is also designed to improve the competitiveness of an employer.
     
    “Stradis is rapidly evolving as a leader in innovative and cost-efficient medical device packaging. The support from ARC has helped our company reinforce our position in the industry,” said Adam Sokol, president and co-founder of Stradis Healthcare during a presentation on August 15 at its headquarters. Mayor Mike Mason, Gwinnett County’s Board of Commissioners Chairman Charlotte Nash, Partnership Gwinnett leaders and Atlanta Regional Commission leaders were on hand to take part in the presentation.
     
    The employee training program was designed specific to the company’s needs. Stradis collaborated with WorkSource Atlanta Regional to modernize and integrate several organizational processes. For an entire year, the company committed to intensive employee training that helped to improve customer experience, making the system more attractive to its customers.
     
    “We are delighted to have innovative companies, like Stradis located in our city.” said Mayor Mike Mason. “Stradis has invested in the people of this community, and we believe there is no greater way to grow and elevate our talented labor force.”
     
    Funded by the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, the re-training was made possible through the WorkSource’s Incumbent Worker Training program which is designed to improve the skills of employees and an employer’s competitiveness.
