What is PT WORK Force?

PT WORK Force (where WORK stands for Work force Outreach, Research and Knowledge) is an initiative to develop and deliver tools to support employers in attracting qualified candidates to the PT/MC industry and position the PT/MC industry as a vibrant place to establish and develop a career. The world of work is always changing. PT WORK Force will help you better understand and manage this evolving environment.

Attract Qualified Talent with PT WORK Force Recruitment Tools

How can you attract talented, skilled and enthusiastic individuals to your job openings? Learn how to create attractive job postings and then post to the Industrial Distribution Job Board. The Industrial Distribution Job Board is the only online job board devoted to the industrial distribution field. PTDA member companies can use a special coupon code for a 25 percent discount on 30 and 60 day job postings.

Promote your industry in your local community to attract the best and brightest to your doors. It's challenging to hire the right employees, but even more challenging when they have no idea what power transmission/motion control means. PT WORK Force will be developing “How To” guides with step-by-step checklists for attending career fairs, hosting company tours and offering classroom presentations to attract the perfect job candidates to your openings.

PT WORK Force will keep your company visible in your community by including your company locations in the online Employer Database which will be accessible to job seekers.
