Why PT WORK Force®?

We face a competitive disadvantage because potential future employees don't know about the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry and the opportunities it offers for good, interesting jobs with a path to advancement.

Competing and thriving in tomorrow's marketplace demands that PT/MC distributors successfully attract and keep the next generation of new talent.

The failure to do so puts the field and the industry at risk.

New tools and methods will be needed to succeed in this new world of work. PT/MC distributors and manufacturers need resources to attract, hire, on-board, train, manage and retain their employees. PT WORK Force® was created to assist industry employers with these issues.
