3. Widely recognized workplace credentials that document readiness for growth and development, which verify skill levels and are transportable across industries and geography.Employers across America who use these tools have results to report. Berner Food & Beverage, Inc., of Dakota, Illinois. The 70-year old private label supplier of food and beverage products for retailers reported turnover rates in one department that cost the company nearly $200,000 a year in 2009 and 2010. Berner used data, assessments and credentials to reduce turnover to just over 2 percent in 2011. They also lowered, over a two-year period, workers’ compensation expense by 95 percent, and the cost of nonconforming product by 80 percent. The firm is currently experiencing the best run without a lost-time injury in company history. Stephen Kneubuehl, president and CEO, attributes much of the turnaround to training, assessments and certification offered at Highland Community College.
