Manufacturing is the backbone of the economy and we are proud of our new partnership with Dream It Do It for the future of Minnesota and for the US as a whole.”
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
Pro Staff and Ware Technology Services, two staffing and recruiting firms within the Atterro Human Capital Group, proudly announce their joint donation to Dream It Do It MN and the establishment of a new partnership to encourage the pursuit of manufacturing careers throughout Minnesota.
The donation was initiated by Pro Staff and Ware in conjunction with their sponsorship of Minnesota Business magazine’s 2014 Manufacturing Awards. A check will be presented on behalf of the award nominees and finalists at the awards event on September 23, 2014, in Minneapolis.
This is the first donation ever received by Dream It Do It MN from a staffing agency and has opened up new possibilities for funding of its efforts by other Minnesota businesses in the future. Both Pro Staff and Ware are now seeking more opportunities to partner with Dream It Do It in other states where they do business across the US.
As awareness of next generation manufacturing grows, new attention is being paid to the role of a skilled workforce in the industry’s success, as skilled workers are critical to growth and innovation. Today’s manufacturing is still a powerhouse in the U.S. economy, and through changing the current perception of manufacturing, Dream It Do It’s goal is to promote rewarding careers in manufacturing.
