The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), as part of its effort to inspire members and association partners in developing strategies to build a bigger, better workforce, plans to host its second annual Workforce Solutions Summit this summer.

The one-day virtual summit is scheduled for Aug. 19. AEM says it will offer valuable information and insights, as well as research-based solutions, to organizations looking to recruit, train and retain employees.

“It’s critically important for our industry to take a proactive and informed approach to workforce development activities, as well as developing the employees of tomorrow,” says Julie Davis, AEM senior director of workforce solutions. “Manufacturing offers a wealth of incredible career opportunities, and this summit serves as a uniquely valuable forum for industry stakeholders to learn how to effectively recruit talent and promote the skilled trades.”

AEM will also offer pre-summit workshops on Aug. 17 and 18. Capacity is limited, AEM says, so interested attendees should add the workshops to their order when registering for the Workforce Solutions Summit.

“Our Workforce Summit will cover topics to help our members and the industry develop a pipeline of talent to help them move their businesses forward, and many of the ideas presented can be easily implemented,” Davis says. “Ultimately, this summit is designed for all roles who have a stake in growing and developing a successful workforce – executives and company leaders, operation leads, training and hiring managers, and human resources and recruiting professionals. Because finding talent is more than just a human resources issue, it’s a business issue.”
