Imagine! Receives $340M Minnesota Job Skills Partnership Grant

Imagine! recently received a $340M Minnesota Job Skills Partnership Grant. We will work with Hennepin Technical College in the design, development and implementation of courses which will be delivered to 196 employees (82 of which will be new) at the Shakopee headquarters.

Courses will include: Orientation to Graphic Arts; Introduction to Color Theory and Measurement; Workplace Documentation and Communications; Health, Safety and Machine Guarding; Print Technology and Machine Operations; Total Quality Management, and more!

This project will develop a standardized career path for employees including a means to engage new hires quickly and proficiently, reduce turnover of new hires, increase retention and productivity, improve safety on the floor, and improve quality of products as the result of a stronger knowledge base. We’re excited to partner with Hennepin Technical College on this exciting program!
