Building the Pipeline for our Regional Advanced Manufacturing Sector
NYMAT was one of the many companies who have taken FAME’s 5% Pledge! These companies have united in their pledge to expand our workforce and long-term prosperity as business leaders in the community by pledging 5% of their current workforce to the future. That means that for every 100 employees in their organization, they will strive to provide five temporary positions for interns, high school students, and/or the long-term unemployed as a method of exposing them to the manufacturing culture through experience. In turn, these workers will gain valuable skills and experience to guide them as they become the workforce of tomorrow.
About the 5% Pledge: to succeed, manufacturers need a skilled workforce, strong business model, leadership and a thriving community. In the Rochester region, it has become a challenge to find qualified workers. FAME strives to unite and pledge to expand our workforce and long- term prosperity as business leaders in the community.
