Manufacturer invests in talent pipeline

Aug. 21, 2015; Grand Rapids Business Journal

A West Michigan manufacturing company is creating its own talent pipeline by reaching out to at-risk high school students in Ottawa County and offering them a job and a ride to work.

… (Primera President Noel) Cuellar said with a car, students are able to access even more opportunities to build their value — often on the company’s dime. They can opt to take classes at Grand Rapids Community College or another college in the area, enroll in a trades program, or even attend a conference or some other learning opportunity.
