During my Prepress services study, I continue to learn about ways Widen is staying ahead of the competition. Specifically, about a year ago Widen introduced an Apprenticeship Program for our color retouching and management services. The individuals selected for this program had just finished their degree work, and have been brought on for work experience. Each day they are introduced to various individuals around the company that do a particular skill very well, all the while sharing the latest and greatest techniques being taught in the industry today. This sensation to the best practices throughout the company creates a sort of “hybrid” position.
So why should you care about something like that? This is continued proof of Widen’s investment and commitment to your future. Many companies talk about having a program like this, but Widen does it. The companies that make it realize they must evolve with the ever changing times and technology. With the ongoing training like mentioned above, this ensures you always have the best tools and practices available, which in turn saves you time and money while yielding better quality.
