At QAD we take pride in knowing that our manufacturing ERP software is part of the creation of amazing products used all over the world. For that reason, we are thrilled to endorse Manufacturing Day 2015.

What is Manufacturing Day?

Manufacturing Day is October 2, 2015, and it celebrates modern manufacturing through events to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Manufacturing companies from all over the country are hosting events to give tours, demonstrations, and in some cases provide information on career opportunities in their communities. It’s a great way for manufacturers to showcase their value to their surrounding community as well as address common misconceptions of what people think about the world of manufacturing.

Get Involved in the Movement

What many people don’t realize is that manufacturing is thriving, and there are countless job opportunities to recent grads and job-seekers. There’s so much more to manufacturing today with the new and developing technologies, such as 3D printing and automated solutions. Now’s the time to show that off to your community and find talent to take your company to the next level. There are various types of events you can host:

  • Career Fair – If you’ve had a hard time filling positions, this is a great way to meet one-on-one with the job-seekers in your community.
  • Tour – Schedule some time to bring people through your facility. Get the public excited about what is being manufactured in their community.
  • Demonstrations – Take the tour up a notch by demonstrating your manufacturing process in-action.
  • Presentations – Have people from various departments of your company give presentations on their positions and how they are part of the big picture. Provide the public with a broad look at the career paths available.

Although many companies are hosting their Manufacturing Day events on October 2nd, you can host your event at any time. As they say on, “any day can be a Manufacturing Day!”
