Recruitment for manufacturing companies has been a challenge in recent years. Despite common belief, manufacturing in the United States is up 27% since 2009 and contributes over $2 trillion to the U.S. economy. That growth has put strain on the manufacturing talent pool, and there are limited candidates with the experience, skills, and training to recruit for these roles. High-tech advancements in the manufacturing industry, including emerging technology like automation, AI, and IoT, are changing the manufacturing workforce from primarily blue-collar to a highly trained mix of blue and white-collar professionals. This shift has created a high demand for highly skilled manufacturing talent, and also means manufacturers are often competing with organizations from other industries to hire workers with the right expertise.

That’s why our manufacturing clients rely on Bemana’s recruitment solutions. With more than 35 years of combined experience in manufacturing recruiting, we understand the industry and the challenges hiring managers face in hiring the employees they need to grow their business. Our recruitment process starts by asking the right questions about your company and role to fully understand your culture and workforce needs. Our recruiters then use this information to search our robust talent pipeline for people who will be an ideal fit for your positions and are ready to put their skills to work for your team. If your organization has a critical job to fill, contact Bemana today to find out how our manufacturing recruiters can give you a talent advantage.

Bemana is a leading recruiter across the manufacturing industry

Automation and robotics have become integral to the modern manufacturing process, as they have for organizations across sectors. The demand for process automation engineers, robot programmers, industrial electricians, and production line managers is high and growing, leading to skill shortages in the talent pool that can make finding the right candidate for your roles a challenge. Our broad reach and manufacturing expertise make Bemana recruiters a powerful partner for companies that need to add these specialized skill sets to their team. 

Maintenance technicians, reliability engineers, shutdown/turnaround coordinators, and similar professionals play a critical role in manufacturing organizations, ensuring the longevity and optimal performance of the equipment and machinery your company relies on. Success in these roles requires not just specialized technical skills but also an understanding of the specific equipment used in your industry, and that combination of knowledge can be challenging to find in the job market. Partnering with Bemana gives you access to our extensive talent network so you can hire employees with the right expertise who will make a lasting impact for your business. 

From optimizing processes to maintaining safety standards, plant managers, production supervisors, HR managers, and similar professionals play a pivotal role in ensuring the smooth, efficient functioning of manufacturing facilities. These candidates need to demonstrate experience successfully managing complex operations, something that is in high demand and difficult to find in today’s hiring landscape. This is where an experienced recruiter like Bemana can be an advantage, helping you quickly find and hire the right talent for your team. 

Manufacturing production professionals are instrumental in upholding safety standards and product quality while meeting production goals. Often, this requires industry-specific certifications or training, along with experience optimizing processes to minimize downtime and adapt to changing demands. Bemana recruiters bring decades of experience to each search we undertake, allowing us to quickly identify the right assemblers, machine operators, maintenance technicians, and other key players for your team out of the more than 30,000 professionals in our talent pipeline.

Research and development professionals play an important role in driving innovation that allows manufacturing organizations to adapt to market changes, develop and improve products, and stay competitive in their industry. Our network of candidates includes skilled talent with experience in a range of roles in this area, from materials and research scientists to manufacturing specialists, data analysts, product development engineers, and prototyping specialists who can bring those new ideas to life.  

Maintaining a safe work environment is critical in manufacturing organizations, ensuring you stay in compliance with regulatory requirements and minimizing the risk of accidents and injuries to your workforce. Bemana’s candidate network includes professionals with experience in all aspects of manufacturing safety, including machine safety specialists, safety inspectors, risk management specialists, safety data analysts, and safety coordinators who can oversee safety programs and training across your organization. 

Managing the flow of resources, goods, and information between and within organizations is increasingly complex in today’s globalized economy. These professionals need to be experts, not just in the management and transportation of goods in your sector, but also in the dynamic supply chain landscape. The production planners, logistics coordinators, transportation analysts, and similar candidates in Bemana’s talent network have the skills and experience to ensure smooth and efficient supply chain performance in your organization.
