Some of our member companies have taken advantage of the skill sets that these students have acquired and benefitted from hiring workers and interns that have gone through these programs.  According to Jeff Perry at FC Industries, “DRMA does a lot to help address the workforce needs of the manufacturing industry. The work they do with educators to incorporate industry-recognized credentials into their curriculum and produce credentialed graduates has helped me find more qualified employees. Industry credentials take the guesswork out of hiring, because the credential tells me what the candidate knows and can do based standards developed by manufacturers across the country. It also shows that the candidate has a genuine interest in manufacturing and has invested time into learning the necessary skills.”

Learn about the advantages of hiring people with industry-recognized credentials at our next Workforce/HR Meet Up. Scott Ellsworth, senior advisor for the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC), will be on hand to talk about why he, as a former manufacturer, believes in the value of industry credentials and how they work. The Meet Up is on March 26, 7:30-8:30 a.m. at Barry Staff in downtown Dayton. Click here to register.  (Meet Ups are free and for DRMA members only.)

To find out how you can be connected with graduates who have industry credentials and who are ready for hire, contact Kayla or give us a call at (937) 949-4000.
