Quality Systems Supervisor, AdvancePierre Foods
Listen to Eric’s emotional tale of employees literally applauding their new training program – and his vow to never experience an audit without Alchemy again.

“The best training and reinforcement possible.”
Human Resources Manager, Chudleigh’s
Amanda speaks to a common challenge in the food industry: having great training during onboarding, but a huge gap in ongoing and refresher training throughout the year.

“Alchemy is a life saver.”
Regional Operations Manager – Safety, Dawn Foods Distribution
Ed explains how Alchemy helped cut his organization’s TRIR (recordable injuries) nearly in half – and sustain that success over 8 years with Alchemy. Another huge win is Alchemy’s ability to solve the challenge of training remote drivers, and easily track and document their training centrally. Ed sums up his recommendation for Alchemy: “It’s a life saver. It’s a money saver. And it’s convenient.”
“I can’t stress how valuable Alchemy is.”
Training Manager, Ventura Foods
Tony is excited how Alchemy “has been that uniting factor between management and our floor employees.” He loves how Alchemy allows them to train 30 employees at once, in 15 minutes or less. And also, how Alchemy Coach provides an avenue for continuous improvement of performance and engaging interaction between supervisors and employees.
“This is the right solution for us.”
Operations Learning Leader, Maple Leaf Foods

“I love Alchemy.”
Human Resources, Creative Werks Packaging
Creative Werks has many food industry customers, and Apryl explains how their trust in Creative Werks is instantaneous upon learning Creative Werks uses Alchemy. Apryl also “loves” Alchemy because of how much time it saves her staff while pinpointing where gaps in training and performance exist. Perhaps her favorite component is how Alchemy listens to her needs, provides excellent support, and creates a true partnership with Creative Werks.
“A one-stop learning resource.”
Learning & Development Supervisor, West Liberty Foods

“You can’t beat what Alchemy has to offer.”
Training Coordinator, Dorada Foods
Consistency is key in food manufacturing. Cindy explains how Alchemy allows Dorada Foods to deliver consistent messaging to new hires and veteran employees.

“A more knowledgeable workforce, in a fraction of the time.”
Training Coordinator, Cascade Coffee
As a co-manufacturer, Cascade Coffee needs to deliver very specific instructions to employees for each of their customers’ products.

“We benefit tremendously from Alchemy.”
Senior QA Technician, Red Diamond

“Alchemy helps me sleep peacefully.”
Operations Training Supervisor, Idahoan Foods
A challenge for all manufacturers is ensuring consistency in worker knowledge and performance across all shifts, every day, in every facility.

Alchemy also helps James find gaps in training and knowledge of each individual employee, with automated alerts on who needs what training.
“The possibilities are endless.”
Safety Manager, AdvancePierre Foods
Brian explains how his plant reduced workers’ comp costs by 97% by achieving (and sustaining) a TIR of 1.32. The “only difference we made from one year to the next” to achieve this success was implementing Alchemy. In addition to fewer injuries and better worker performance, Alchemy also helps Brian manage his own time with automated, paperless documentation. He jokingly admits he shed “tears of joy” discovering how easy and time-saving Alchemy’s reporting system is.
