Recruit & Retain: Strategies to Close the Manufacturing Talent Gap


Download the presentation here!

What steps is your company taking to stand out and attract new talent? Many students are taking the route of traditional college and not exploring their options within a career technical school. Over the years, this trend could cause a great decline in the talent pool for numerous manufacturing jobs causing great gaps in our country’s employment. How can we prevent this decline together?

During this session, VonLehman’s Darren Baldwin and Butler Tech’s Jon Graft will educate you on:

  • The importance of career technical schools and their impact on all industries
  • How to differentiate your company from the competition
  • How to create a successful organizational development strategy
  • How to become a destination for millennials


Also, we will have a panel of experts to answer the questions you have on these topics. In addition to our presenters, our panelists include Amy Meyer, Vice President of Corporate Development for Rhinestahl, who will discuss innovative ways Rhinestahl has recruited and retained quality employees. She will be joined by a current employee and recent Butler Tech graduate who will share her experience and why she made the decision to attend a tech school and pursue a career in manufacturing.
