Manufacturing Recruiting for the 21st Century
Manufacturing represents one of America’s largest employment sectors with over 15 million people engaged in manufacturing and manufacturing-related jobs. However, most of the jobs bear little resemblance to the manufacturing jobs occupied by their parents. American manufacturing has undergone a profound evolution over the past two decades driven by rapid changes in technology and product innovation. Gone are the days of labor-intensive, high-volume production lines.
Today’s manufacturing executives oversee lean operations that rely heavily on technology and innovation to remain at the cutting edge. At the same time, it has become more challenging than ever to recruit and retain experienced and skilled executives in the manufacturing sector, which has endured a persistent labor shortage over the past two years. Our track record of recruiting and placing top manufacturers in this market is the reason that so many of our past partners return to us for future placements and why so much of our recruiting work is referral-based.

To meet the demands of today’s modern manufacturing processes, companies must recruit a highly skilled and educated workforce. Recruiting for such positions requires a more stringent approach than traditional manufacturing. Prospective executives must possess technical skills, and problem-solving abilities, and be familiar with the latest technologies and trends. We help our clients identify individuals who are creative thinkers with strong leadership skills.
