We’re A Different Kind of Staffing Partner
Founded on a rich background of manufacturing and operational experience, Engauge understands the external environment, complexities and unique language of manufacturing and distribution. Most importantly, we know what we’re good at, we choose to focus exclusively on industrial clients. We have decades of experience hiring, training and developing the right people to contribute to and drive our partners’ success. Undoubtedly our experience in manufacturing sets us apart from our competitors when it comes to manufacturing staffing and distribution staffing.
We don’t believe in cookie-cutter recruitment and staffing 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 can fit the right Associate to the right job. We think of ourselves as a staffing accelerator, as a result the Associates we place are productive from day one so you can see, feel and measure the impact immediately
BETTER CANDIDATES = BETTER OUTCOMES
Our recruitment processes leverages Engauge’s proprietary UPSIDE assessment, along with decades of experience in manufacturing and distribution. Our experience enables us to place the right Associates in the right roles, and with the right blend of hard and soft skills. Additionally, we 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. Therefore, 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.
WORKFORCE ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM
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. However, 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 onsite and recruitment 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.
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 in employing team members from numerous cultural backgrounds. In result, we have internal staff who speak many native languages that also have direct experience in a wide array of industries. For example, we have in-house onsite and recruitment staff who speak 7 non-English languages 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 diverse Associates are fully integrated into our clients’ cultures.
Engauge’s expertise lies solely in manufacturing and distribution. Not only do we recognize the distinctive qualities of the different industry segments, but we also understand the obstacles that accompany them. Our service delivery is tailored to your industry and specific production processes, ensuring suitable solutions.
