Leading2Lean was created on a factory floor. The entire leadership team and many others in the company have firsthand experience working in and leading manufacturing environments. Our software solution is sold only to manufacturers.
It’s safe to say that manufacturing is in our blood.
Not a day goes by where the media does not report on manufacturing talent shortages in all verticals and across in the country. The reasons are many, but one is that manufacturing is often misunderstood by the job seeking public. Gone are the days on unfulfilling work in a gloomy workplace. Instead, manufacturing careers require technical, problem-solving and communications skills in order to be successful in a competitive and complex environment.
Learn about how Tracy Walker, the Operations Manager at West Liberty Foods, compares manufacturing to competitive sports.
To give back to the manufacturing industry, Leading2Lean is proud to launch our first scholarship application program. For 2018, we are awarding two scholarships of $1,250 each to students in Michigan enrolled in a qualified educational program that has a manufacturing job track. Qualified programs can exist at a vocational, technical or community college.
Please contact your Michigan school for an application after July 1, 2018.
In 2019, we hope to expand our Manufacturing Scholarship to other locations within the United States.
We look forward to reading your submission. Good luck!
