list front-line leadership training as a key to reducing costs and improving margin.

78% of top manufacturing executives list front-line leadership training as a key to reducing costs and improving margin.

Front-line managers make up roughly 60% of a company’s management ranks (Harvard Business Review).

Front-line managers and supervisors are the glue that holds a business together and can make or break key manufacturing metrics such as capacity, throughput, uptime, and margin. They are responsible for many of the day-to-day operations and impact the health of your business and its culture. Unfortunately, they are typically also the team members with the least amount of managerial experience and leadership training.

When training these front-line supervisors and managers to be more effective leaders and improve teamwork, companies face many challenges. A recent survey from Woohoo Inc. showed that the number one reason employees have a “bad day at work” is due to a lack of help and support from their manager. POWERS has the expertise to train your front-line personnel into the leaders you need to drive productivity and transform performance.


Nearly are set to retire over the next ten years, taking their specialized skills and institutional knowledge with them.

Nearly 27% of manufacturing workers are set to retire over the next ten years, taking their specialized skills and institutional knowledge with them.

The majority of manufacturing companies run at 60 - 80% efficiency (Rhythm Systems). Therefore, focusing on shop floor excellence best practices can be genuinely transformative for driving manufacturing performance improvement and achieving full capacity. But implementing effective training programs can be challenging.

To significantly impact manufacturing shop floor excellence, everyone in the organization must be pulling in the same direction. This incremental process improvement begins with team leadership. The site leader must be dedicated to a compelling vision for organizational excellence and be able to communicate it persistently and consistently at all levels. POWERS can help your team get there and stay there with the right plan and the right training.


Downtime costs most factories somewhere between of their production capacity.

Downtime costs most factories somewhere between 5% and 20% of their production capacity.

Unplanned manufacturing downtime can cost your business millions every year. Your maintenance team’s primary job is to maximize uptime, ensuring you’re operating at or near full capacity and product is flowing to your customers. If your maintenance team’s performance is a drag on production, in areas like predictive and preventive practices, staffing, planning, parts inventory, and scheduling, your overall capacity, not to mention your bottom line, will suffer.

There are many maintenance philosophies, ranging from a mentality of “run until it breaks” to constant monitoring and repair of equipment. Regular, planned maintenance is essential in preventing the failure of critical equipment, which can significantly affect productivity. In most manufacturing facilities, predictive and preventive maintenance programs ensure the best performance. The experts at POWERS can help you develop and implement a best-practices and continuous improvement plan to maximize your maintenance program’s effectiveness.


Employees’ overall ratings of their company’s qualities, like collaboration, work environment, and mission and value alignment, are at companies with strong cultures.

Employees’ overall ratings of their company’s qualities, like collaboration, work environment, and mission and value alignment, are 20% higher at companies with strong cultures.

Company culture is essentially the personality of a company. It’s how employees behave in the company and how the organization delivers a sustainable competitive advantage. Organizational culture consists of company values, vision, beliefs, and habits. The most important part of any company is the people. So when work culture isn’t engaging your workforce, individual productivity, and overall performance suffer.

According to Forbes, culture has to do with “Company vision, values, norms, systems, symbols, language, assumptions, beliefs, and habits.” Company culture is something that exists in your company’s DNA. It’s not something that employees bring with them. Our aim at POWERS is to train your entire organization on the behaviors that not only exemplify your company culture but deliver maximum performance. We call it "Operationalizing Your Culture."

POWERS partnered with a world-class, 7th generation family-owned and operated meat processing company that uses only real, natural ingredients, original recipes, and time-honored traditions to create distinctive and timeless products.
