Employee Experience

Your Talent Struggles

The largest percentage of your workforce is nearing retirement, and you’re struggling to attract new talent. You’re concerned about retention in light of the large labor gap in manufacturing.

The thought of defining an internal company culture is intimidating. Your brand story isn’t clear, even to your internal team.

The avenues candidates search for jobs has evolved, but the way you promote open positions hasn’t. Today's talent is looking for meaning, but your brand and culture aren’t represented well in the digital space.

Our Talent Services

First, we help define your employer brand. We help you tell a better story. We capture the passion, expertise, and family vibe of your team.

The best way to grow your workforce and attract the right talent is with content that promotes your culture. A strong employer brand will help you attract new talent and retain your best employees. 

Our strategies tackle three buckets of talent: attracting youth to manufacturing, mid-career leadership transitions, and combating loss of knowledge by engaging retirees in retention strategies.
