Building a talent pipeline for your manufacturing/distribution business

NAM-GetSkillstoWork-logosRegular readers of this blog know that we are big supporters of veterans. Tribute has veterans among our staff as well as some who have sons and other relatives currently serving.

Since hundreds of thousands of veterans are transitioning out of the military, hiring a vet is a great opportunity to obtain a quality employee.

Distributor sales grew by 6.1% in the second quarter of 2014, continuing a stretch of 18 consecutive quarterly gains, which means many are hiring now.

Many veterans are taking advantage of the Post-9/11 GI Bill to advance their education. But how do you find those veterans that are training for manufacturing careers-and how can you assess their readiness for jobs in machining, welding, maintenance, and other key manufacturing occupations?

The Manufacturing Institute, in partnership with the National Association of Manufacturers, invites you to a free webinar on the education connection to veterans.
