Food & Beverage

Stringent compliance programs paired with quick, engaging onboarding & training

Training is the Ingredient that Binds Compliance & Business Goals Together

The food and beverage industry employ millions of people worldwide but with a global population expected to grow to almost 10 billion by 2050—that’s a lot of mouths to feed— and there is a lot of pressure to get products to market safer, faster and cheaper.  

But, in trying to do all things at once compliance can go astray.  

Regulators have taken notice. In fact, in the last few years, they have issued multiple large-scale recalls, 

  • Millions of pounds of raw beef recalled due to an outbreak of salmonella 
  • A recall of romaine lettuce due to an E. coli outbreak that was linked to at least 193 illnesses and five deaths 
  • 450,000 pounds of frozen chicken was recalled for potentially containing fragments of metal 

Staying in compliance is a matter of life and death. In addition to the harm caused to consumers, a recall can be detrimental to a brand’s reputation and bottom-line. According to a PwC report, hundreds of companies have recalled products over the past five years, and the cost of these recalls ranged from $10 million to $30 million each.

ShareKnowledge helps organizations close the loop on risk exposure by streamlining and automating the entire compliance lifecycle as well as facilitates the 'partnership' of all key players in the compliance landscape - reducing risk and increasing quality management.

Employee Retention Issues

The food & beverage industry is notorious for high turnover as well, where it’s a passion for some and a temporary gig to make ends meet for others. 

High production quotas, tight timelines, and maintaining consistent behavior across all lines, shifts, and locations is challenging when there are new employees coming in and out. Add federal regulations and compliance rules to the list, and training employees well enough to routinely apply correct behavior on the floor becomes a bigger challenge.  

Onboarding with ShareKnowledge keeps everything moving forward smoothly, getting new employees up-to-speed and productive quickly and keeps them engaged with ongoing education.

What our clients say ...

ShareKnowledge SharePoint Learning Management System has given us the peace of mind that every single one of our learners, from tech savvy to tech challenged, can meet their training requirements efficiently and effectively while elevating the goals and standards of the organization

Sean Claremont

QHSE Manager, HIgh Arctic Energy Services

...The adoption and launch of ShareKnowledge SharePoint Learning Management System was completely transparent. Operations team members were encouraged to “simply visit the CorVel intranet and take your necessary training.” Trainees never knew they were leaving the intranet and entering ShareKnowledge. This provided a seamless experience for the trainee.

Matthew Smith

Documentation & Training Manager, CorVel Corporation

We chose ShareKnowledge to train our team of over 1,000 sales staff on a new CRM software. Our goal was to reduce the travel and classroom time that keeps the sales staff away from selling. ShareKnowledge helped us achieve that by providing an easy to use system that allowed our team to learn at their own pace in a more sales directed learning approach.

Kim Cole

Learning Specialist, Pulte Group

Straight forward installation and use. Dead simple integration with Office suite. Intuitive. Affordable. Great LMS that is Corp-centric (not academia). End user and administrative interfaces are very user-friendly.

Thomas Standifur

Manager, Austin Energy

HIPAA and compliance training for over 3,000 employees is a big task – much more than our former LMS could provide. By choosing ShareKnowledge compliance training solutions, we were able to easily offer specific training for selected groups, track weekly training webinar attendance for CEU credits, and receive detailed record keeping. ShareKnowledge did just what it said it would do and we couldn’t be happier.

Documentation & Training Manager, CorVel Corporation

ShareKnowledge as a SharePoint Learning Management System offers the cost-effectiveness of a SaaS LMS solution and lower hardware, software, integration, administration, and user adoption costs than a non SharePoint-based on-premises alternative.

Senior HR Systems Analyst, DCEH

My experience was great! ShareKnowledge provided my company with a flexible, customizable, and fully integrated learning management system. When I ran into a problem that I could not figure out, my support representative person was always there to take the time to setup a zoom or just guide me through the process. I couldn't have asked for a better support person.

It is easy to upload outside trainings onto your training history to make sure credit is given. Easy for managers to pull history of an employee to know when they are coming due for trainings. I like that trainings can be specific to a certain group, individual or open to all.

I have built a POC with Share knowledge LMS Solution tailored for large scale implementations and found the product very flexible in terms of understanding the customer's business logic in learning and reflecting it in the LMS automation.
