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
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
