Workforce Matters Virtual Learning Series: Finding Talent

next event

Thursday, June 27, 2019

The manufacturing skills gap is an immediate and ongoing challenge. PMA is poised to provide you with practical, detailed best practices and advice to find, engage and retain top talent.

Join us on Thursday, June 27 at 2:00 p.m. EDT for a webinar presentation that will share best practices and advice on finding talent, with a focus on underserved populations, veterans, National Guard and reservists, and more. The presenters will be Stacey Schroeder, PMA's director of workforce development, and Adam Wagner, talent acquisition specialist at Winzeler Stamping.

Adam Wagner is a corporate recruiter based in the Midwest, and currently serves as Talent Acquisition Specialist at Winzeler Stamping Company in Montpelier, OH. Adam enjoys discovering unique ways to match the right people with the right positions, and relies heavily on his past sales, marketing, graphic design, and radio broadcasting experiences to find those “needle in the haystack” candidates his company needs.  He has recruited on the national level for ADP out of Findlay, OH, and is currently enjoying the unique challenge of finding qualified candidates in a small town setting. Adam has earned an Associate’s degree in Business Management from Northwest State Community College, and graduated with a B.A. in Organizational Management from Bluffton University.

PMA's Workforce Matters Virtual Learning Series includes sessions on developing a training program, finding talent, interviewing for a good fit, building your own talent pipeline, performance management and building the culture and practices that lead to employee engagement and retention.

Every other month in this series, we will focus on an aspect of METALFORM EDU and/or other PMA workforce development initiatives. Topics will include how to integrate METALFORM EDU with your existing training program, what's new, best practices on using PMA programs to engage and retain your top talent and more.
