You provide the food; we'll provide the food for thought! Manufacturing Works' virtual Lunch 'n' Learn series features local successful manufacturing leaders with great lessons to share. You can learn from their stories of what it took to get where they are today, and what they are doing to continue growing toward the future.

Local manufacturer, Oatey, knows that workforce development is essential for companies that want to cultivate a top-quality workforce.

The benefits of workforce development are twofold. On one hand, the employees gain from training, while on the other hand, the employers also enjoy a higher-skilled, more motivated team. Benefits for companies include:

  • Reduced turnover rate
  • Increased operational efficiency
  • Improved productivity
  • Enhanced innovative thinking
  • Proactive, not reactive, problem solving

Oatey is an active participant in Manufacturing Works' Youth Programs, engaging students and educating them about the opportunities in manufacturing. Additionally, they are an original member of our Apprenticeship Consortium, providing paid on-the-job training and mentoring.

Continue the conversation! Stick around for some optional networking following the presentation! Manufacturing Works' Workforce Development team will be there to answer your questions.
