MASSACHUSETTS MANUFACTURER BANKS ON MILLENNIALS
 
 
 
Arwood Machine Corp., a high-precision machine shop in Newburyport, had the opportunity to grow its business but was hampered by a lack of skilled workers. To combat this talent shortage, Arwood successfully brought training for new and incumbent workers in-house…without impacting productivity. A big focus? Learning how to recruit and develop millennials. Arwood saw 10% upward trends in productivity as well as a significant reduction in scrap/rework. Other benefits included decreased defects, improved morale, heightened innovation and increased skills. Learn more about how Arwood engages millennials.
 
EDUCATORS & MANUFACTURERS PROVE TRAINING ROI
 
 
 
EDUCATORS & MANUFACTURERS PROVE TRAINING ROI
 
 
 
More than ever, manufacturers must prove the return on investment (ROI) of training. By understanding and contributing to this process, educators can become a valuable partner in a company’s success. The first step is learning how manufacturers tie learning and development to the bottom line. This is done by using industry formulas to calculate ROI for metrics, such as accelerating onboarding, reducing downtime and increasing productivity. Discover these formulas and best practices in a new Tooling U-SME white paper, “Proving the ROI of Training: Moving From Expense to Necessity.” Download White Paper now.

MANUFACTURER SUPPORTS LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL
 
 
 
MAKING COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS
 
 
 
Justin Casper, a technology instructor at Two Rivers High School in Wisconsin, found himself in a typical dilemma: a lack of funding to obtain learning resources needed to enhance his curriculum and prepare students for careers in manufacturing. Casper turned to Tooling U-SME, producers of the Fundamental Manufacturing Processes video series, for help. Tooling U-SME connected him to Baileigh Industrial, a local metal fabrication and woodworking machinery equipment company in nearby Manitowac, which was more than happy to purchase the video series for the school. Read more about how education and industry work together to solve the skills gap crisis in manufacturing.
