To keep up with business growth, Ipsen USA has hired more than 50 new employees over the past year and implemented new training programs.
With continued focus on customer service, hiring initiatives include expanding the parts department and increasing the number of field service personnel.
In addition to ramping up its recruiting efforts, Ipsen has also implemented internal training and advancement programs to focus on employee retention and developing leadership roles. So far, six employees have earned their PLX (Principles of Leadership Excellence certificate) through MRA, one of the largest employer associations in the nation.
“I am extremely grateful for our senior management’s commitment and investment in professional development,” said Lydia Nieuwenhuis, Ipsen’s HR and benefits manager who completed the program in March.
The PLX program is comprised of 12 sessions over six months. The goal is to provide opportunities to learn the skills, behaviors, and knowledge needed for effective, successful leadership. Over the past year, eight Ipsen employees have been promoted or moved to roles with greater responsibility, including two who previously earned their PLX.
“Ipsen is committed to developing our employees’ skills and promoting from within the company,” said Janet Nanni, Ipsen’s director of human resources. “We have a team of dedicated, hard-working individuals, many of whom have the potential to become valuable leaders in the organization.”
