Marathon Staffing

Visit Marathon at This Year’s 38th AME Conference in Dallas!

Marathon Staffing is excited to be exhibiting at the AME Dallas International Conference from Oct. 17th to Oct. 20th, 2022, at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel. The Association for Manufacturing Excellence is hosting its 38th annual conference, an action-packed event filled with workshops for manufacturing professionals, tours of cutting-edge production facilities, inspiring keynote addresses by amazing industry leaders, and more!

The theme of AME Dallas is Embrace Disruption and here at Marathon we also embrace that mantra as it leads to improvement and innovation. 

While there are numerous opportunities at AME Dallas to learn about how to best embrace current changes in the manufacturing space, here are three sessions that we are super excited about that relate to our passion for recruiting and workforce management:

1)      Idea Exchange: Attracting Talent in A Tight Labor Market on 10/18 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM (in-person and virtual).

Conference attendees have the opportunity to share their experiences and listen to others as speak about best practices in recruiting and hiring manufacturing talent. We hope to hear your ideas in this session!

2)      Developing Lean Line Leaders on 10/19 from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM. 

This Practitioner Presentation promises to bring a practical case study to life as attendees will hear first-hand how Milgard Windows and Doors implemented a program that reduced employee turnover and improved KPI’s.

3)      Learning that Works: Recruiting and Retaining the New Collar Workforce on 10/20 9:30 AM to 11 AM.

With the Bureau of Labor Statistics reporting that 50.6 million new job openings will be created this year and only slightly over half of these jobs will require a college degree, how do employers effectively recruit in a society that puts an emphasis on a college education?  How do companies promote learning that will address the growing skills gap for years to come? An expert group of panelists will discuss these workforce challenges from diverse vantage points that will be sure to resonate with attendees.

We are looking forward to hearing how manufacturing professionals have embraced disruption at AME Dallas at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel.  Please be sure to visit the Marathon Team at Booth 912!
