How Sheridan is Igniting the Spark to Keep Printing an Ongoing Art
I’m happy to report the labor issue at Sheridan seems to be turning a corner – though it may be a wide and long corner, and hiring is picking up across our locations. Could it be that the new workforce of today is just as taken to a juicy burger being cooked on the grill by our operations leaders?… I digress. Here are a few of the many ways that Sheridan is igniting the spark in local communities to keep printing an ongoing art: *We invite local graphic arts students to spend a day with us to gain firsthand experience of the graphic art and book manufacturing processes. *We participate in Woodford County Economic Development Authority’s Annual Industry Day in Kentucky by hosting onsite or virtual tours. *We participate in Make it in Manufacturing day in Wisconsin by hosting onsite tours for local high school students. *We work with local colleges to bring in interns from printing programs, graphic arts, and related studies. *We participate in youth apprenticeship with local high school students. *We speak at local vocational and high schools during career preview days. *We speak at local colleges about manufacturing job opportunities. *We participate in area and trade specific job fairs.
