At Engauge, we don’t believe in cookie cutter solutions. We spend extensive time getting to know our clients’ business, down to the individual job requirements. We also work to understand your culture and the formal and informal ways you do your work. That way, we are able to fit the right associate to the right job. We think of ourselves as a workforce accelerator, making sure the associates we place are productive from day one so you can see, feel and measure the impact immediately.
Manufacturing & Distribution
is in our DNA
Founded on a rich background of manufacturing and operational experience, Engauge understands the external environment, complexities and unique language of manufacturing and distribution.
We know what we’re good at, and we choose to focus exclusively on industrial clients, where we have decades of experience hiring, training and developing the right people to contribute to and drive our partners’ success.
We leverage Engauge’s proprietary UPSIDE assessment, along with decades of experience in manufacturing and distribution, to place the right associates in the right roles, and with the right blend of hard and soft skills
We also provide customized training opportunities to help associates expand their skills and to help ensure they have the knowledge and support needed to succeed in their new position.
By proactively working with our clients to identify and address skills gaps in their organizations, we can benchmark the current labor force and pinpoint critical skill gaps and bottlenecks. We then work to address those gaps by training, coaching, and or bringing in new talent as needed.
BEYOND ON-SITE SUPPORT
Because our Workforce Engagement Consultants come from manufacturing and distribution backgrounds, they go beyond the traditional role of an “on site lead” to get to the root of production issues and drive improved performance outcomes.
And because they aren’t commission-driven, our Workforce Engagement Consultants act as a final set of impartial eyes to weed out ill-equipped or poorly matched candidates before you spend time and money training them.
Our Workforce Engagement program can be customized to meet your unique requirements, whether you simply need another resource to supervise the shop floor, or you’re looking for full support for touring, training, onboarding and performance management.
A BALANCED APPROACH
We believe the most productive workplace is one that successfully balances the needs of clients with the needs of associates. Our organization is grounded in a belief in the dignity of work. We help individuals discover their potential and develop the skills they need to make a positive impact on their lives and communities through full-time employment. And we help companies develop a stable, skilled and engaged workforce so they can continue to grow and support their communities.
Diversity at Engauge
Diversity and inclusion is not just important to Engauge, it is a core part of the fabric of our organization. We believe that employing team members from numerous cultural backgrounds, who speak native languages and who have direct experience in a wide array of industries, is fundamental to support the workforce of the future. We have in-house staff who speak 7 non-English language and dialects (Spanish, Burmese, Karen, Hmong, Rohingya, ASL and Malay) and who work with clients and associates to ensure potential language barriers are reduced or eliminated. Our multi-lingual Workforce Engagement team spends time at clients working side-by-side with associates to make sure they are productive from day 1. We also work with our clients to translate internal documentation (e.g., onboarding materials, work instructions) to ensure diversity associates are fully integrated into our clients’ cultures.
