AME event: Culture. Empowerment. Creativity – Unleash your innovation ability
Workshop: May 5, 2011; Morton Grove, IL
We all recognize that creativity and innovation are vital to the culture, growth, and sustainability of any business. So why not use a novel way to develop these skills in the workplace? Attendees participate in dialogue and exercises designed to tap into the imagination and creativity we all possess but far too often hesitate to utilize. Fear of failure or a desire for perfection limits our risk taking and initiative, both of which are at the root of new ideas, alternative methods, and solutions.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
