More than 12.3 million people work in Manufacturing and Distribution in the U.S., or about 9% of the U.S. workforce. Few can argue the importance of manufacturing and distribution when it comes to the overall health of the U.S. economy. The Bureau of Economic Analysis put the value of manufacturing in total annual GDP at $2.17 trillion, or 11.9% of the total U.S. GDP. About 77% of high growth manufacturers are planning capital investments in equipment in 2017. Similarly, 46% expect to invest in plant expansion or modernization to meet demands of rapid growth. All manufacturers plan investments in software, and the third highest area of capital expenditure investment for high growth manufacturers is computer hardware. These investments indicate a growing need for advanced professional skill sets for both long-term and short-term projects.
Manhattan Resources diversified into manufacturing and distribution (M&D) as a result of referrals from our satisfied clients in the energy and petrochemicals industries. Our M&D clients support a variety of industries, from aerospace to food ingredients manufacturing, armored personal protection to specialty textiles and beyond. We have supported these clients with senior leadership to grow and manage their businesses across the US. Let us help you find the right talent to achieve your corporate objectives.
We review your opportunity in detail, and explore your company and culture. We prefer to include the direct hiring managers and the staff who will work directly with the role in our initial meetings, so that we can fully understand the needs of all stakeholders.
We prepare informative and engaging materials to attract the best talent to your opportunity. No more wondering how the recruiter is presenting your organization to prospective candidates — your job description and company information are pre-approved by you to ensure they are consistent with your brand positioning.
This is where the magic happens. Our process is extremely transparent – you will know where we are in the search and the state of interaction with the candidates. We hold milestone meetings to keep the search on track for your timeline needs.
We create a candidate report of our findings for each person we think best fits your technical, cultural and career stage requirements. This document is a one-stop shop about the candidate, including any potential gaps we think relevant for your review. Now comes the hard part for you… if you have to choose just one!
We help you put together a competitive package for your chosen candidate, to secure their place and complete your team.
Our performance guaranty means we follow up with you to ensure the arrangement is meeting expectations, and resolve any issues as they arise. Our goal is a satisfied client who not only comes to us for assistance again, but refers us to others.
