One of the best ways to start building your talent pipeline is to become involved in your local community. This could mean making connections with schools, starting an internship program or participating in Manufacturing Day.

Identify and Nurture Future Talent

An oft-heard statement about the PT/MC industry is that it's a "relationship business." Relationships between manufacturers and distributors build inventory channels and marketing plans. Relationships between distributors and end customers build value in uptime and efficiencies.

Building relationships can also help you overcome a growing issue - finding the talent you need to fill open positions. You can't wait until you have an open position. You need to build relationships that help you identify and nurture the talent you will need in the future.
