SME Introduces New Award to Honor the Best in Manufacturing Training


SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SME, the professional association committed to advancing manufacturing and developing a skilled workforce, today announced a new award program to recognize a manufacturer for their commitment and dedication to upskilling the incumbent and future workforce. The SME Excellence in Manufacturing Training Award honors innovative best practices in training programs focused on building a high-performing workforce.

"There are excellent examples of companies that recognize the value of investing in their workforce. We want to shine a light on the exemplary efforts of a manufacturer who understands that talent is a key driver for their business success," said Jeannine Kunz, vice president, Tooling U-SME, the workforce development division of SME. "We are pleased to establish a program that acknowledges the work of a manufacturing company that demonstrates an exceptional commitment and dedication to talent development, recruitment and retention."
