LEAP TA: Manufacturing Summit

LEAP TA: Manufacturing is the only industry-specific event with a bespoke program designed to help you source, attract, onboard and retain the best manufacturing talent.

This year LEAP TA: Manufacturing returned to Atlanta and equipped attendees with the innovation, toolkit, and connections needed to establish and engage a workforce to consistently exceed production objectives.

Attendees heard from the likes of Ford, Nissan, Johnson Controls, and many more manufacturers paving the way with their talent acquisition strategies.

We welcomed over 100 manufacturing TA professionals for three days of learning, networking, and strategizing.

An event that provided attendees with the knowledge and resources to build a portfolio of ideas to turbocharge sourcing strategies, revamp onboarding processes, spearhead diversity objectives, and offer unrivalled employee experiences for their manufacturing workforce.
