Industry Overview:

In addition to education and technical know-how, numerous skills are needed for the challenges of manufacturing. Strategic thinking generates ideas on how to streamline processes, maintain best practices, reduce costs and constantly deliver a high-quality product to the customer. Sometimes this requires rightsizing or adjusting the workforce.

It’s essential to simultaneously maintain quality standards, minimize risk and grow the bottom line. Innovation can help accelerate production and automate processes. To succeed, an appreciation of the target audience is key, as is an understanding of other potential markets. The best candidate also can develop and retain workers who will grow the needed skills for future activity.

Manufacturing requires leaders who collaborate with people from other disciplines, who discover and implement efficiencies, and who bring about satisfactory solutions when dealing with government laws, the environment and related issues so operations can yield the quality that companies expect.

Common Applications:
  • Technical knowledge, with periodic updates
  • Business understanding
  • Best practices
  • Safety
  • Cost-effectiveness

I’d like to thank you and your team for the support received in the recent job searches.  Your efforts to systematically identify candidates, pre-screen them and follow up throughout the interview process was impeccable, leading to 2 key hires in less than a month.  Most impressive was your “Checkster” report and the quick turnaround provided on these key documents.  Finally, your understanding and appreciation for the types of candidates that matched best to the positions was very much appreciated.
