webinar description

Findings from a recent Gallup study entitled “State of the American Workplace” report that 70% of U.S. workers don’t like their job. If that is even a remotely accurate figure, then there are tens of millions of Americans that are completely disconnected and disengaged from their employers. This means less productivity, less collaboration, less innovation and a lot more turnover – – and that’s just for starters! In this special joint webinar with the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance, Mark Preston will dive into proven best practices for effectively increasing your workforce engagement, which ultimately improves your team’s bottom line. So bring your own brown bag (BYOBB) and we’ll provide the best practices!

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Learn proven ways to better engage your employees

  • Gain creative insight into how to build an improved work environment

  • Become a better leader

Georgia Manufacturing Alliance
Jason Moss, CEO
Jason Moss, CEO of the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance (GMA) and a native of McDonough, Georgia, has virtually, single-handedly, been a crusader to make sure what’s made in Georgia more often stays in Georgia, as well as to points beyond, of course.

Moss describes himself as someone who “loves to make connections.” Where others naturally looked outward beyond the state boundaries for business, he saw untapped opportunities for Georgia-based companies to network with each other as vendors. At the same time, such relationships could have helped to put other Georgians to work at a time just when the economy began to go south, i.e., the Great Recession.

So, in 2008, this son of an itinerant minister figuratively traveled in his father’s footsteps throughout the state. Moss, the younger, began to preach a more secular message about the critical importance of the new market opportunities available intramurally. In fact, one of his favorite quotes remains: “The path is made by walking.”

To this day, he is amazed, yet not surprised, that so many manufacturers, purchasing agents, sales representatives and even bankers lack a knowledge of Who’s Who in the Peach State. Moss, a former software salesman, has a standing offer of a crisp $100 bill at meetings and seminars to whomever can identify five products that are made in this state, and rarely, if ever, has had to give it away.

Therefore, the core of the mission statement for the self-governed membership of the GMA reads: “…to make profitable business connections through direct referrals and the events we provide year-round.” In addition to its monthly meetings that may feature networking sessions, manufacturing plant tours or educational training sessions, GMA initiated an Expo in 2013 with 50 exhibitors and 1,000 attendees, a first of its kind in the United States.

Following that Expo and the one in 2014 that drew 75 exhibitors, Governor Nathan Deal issued proclamations denoting June for each of those years as “Buy from Georgia Month,” quite an accomplishment for a nascent trade association.

In addition, earlier this year Moss recently received a unique recognition: the “Georgia Community Leadership Award” from the Georgia Entertainment Gala. The award celebrates GMA’s effort to bring together the state’s entertainment and manufacturing players for the common goal of creating jobs.

“Keeping business in Georgia and providing rapid response to the demanding entertainment community makes for a win-win relationship between the manufacturing and entertainment industry in Georgia,” Moss said. “GMA and our members are excited to play a role in this growing industry.”
