Are you having trouble finding employees? Do the employees you hire never quite seem to be “good” enough? Or are you experiencing high turnover, suffering from an ineffective training program, or having a difficult time moving employees into higher level positions? We know that many companies in the Southern Tier are facing these challenges. Whether it’s an issue with recruiting, training, or retention, or gaps in your talent development program, AMT can assist you in developing a comprehensive plan that identifies and addresses your workforce needs.

HR provides insights on human capital and identifies implications of strategy across functions. HR is also responsible for understanding external forces that affect strategic positions and will indicate any workforce planning and/or management required to meet strategic goals. Alignment between the overall business strategy and human resources is critical for success in any industry. AMT can facilitate the strategic planning process from vision to execution.

Attracting the appropriate quantity and quality of candidates is a critical factor in meeting staffing goals. Understanding labor market conditions and the advantages of different recruiting methodologies help define the strategy for maintaining adequate talent pipelines. Effective retention strategies and practices are required to maintain high-caliber talent and exit low performers. Identifying and fostering the development of high-potential employees is key to keeping talent in the pipeline and having people in place for future leadership roles in the organization. AMT offers services for creating an organizational vision, role identification, capability studies and identifying development opportunities.

An organization is only as good as its people. AMT can help your organization turn its “Human Capital” into a competent and motivated unit that insures your competitive advantage. This is accomplished through activities and programs that create organizational development, functional training, talent management, leadership development and performance management. Development at every level of the organization that is aligned with the business strategy ultimately defines success.

In addition to in-person training and consulting, AMT has partnered with Tooling U-SME, an online training provider, to bring high-quality, customized training to manufacturers.  Every online class has been reviewed and validated by industry experts.

Total rewards combine all types of financial and nonfinancial elements of value that are given to employees by their employer. AMT partners will examine how to develop, select, implement, manage and evaluate total compensation at all levels of the organization to exemplify the goals, values and objectives of the overall business strategy.

Maintaining a balance between employee and employer needs/rights to support organizational success is the art of employee relations. External factors combined with everchanging compliance guidelines can make it a delicate endeavor to manage. AMT can help you understand the employee rights that you are obligated to, and those of which you are not. And how to create a culture of transparency, trust, and respect by both labor and management.

Risk management should be considered a vital component of the organizational strategy that aligns with goals and objectives, with support of robust systems design. Cross-functional program design is an elementary part of providing a safe, secure, and healthful work environment. AM&T is your partner for examining all areas of health, safety, secure operations and compliance that ensure business continuity.
