The challenge

Traditional compensation is no longer attracting and retaining talent

Today’s business environments – with rapidly changing employee behavior, unprecedented resignations and evolving socio-economic conditions – have rendered traditional recruiting and retention methods ineffective.

Many companies are competing for the same pool of candidates, leading to increased competition and difficulty securing workers - especially for industries like manufacturing which often require skilled labor. 

It’s time for an innovative approach to recruiting, engagement, and retention. 


Upskilling Need

The rapid advancement of technology and automation in manufacturing requires workers to continually update their skills.

A Deloitte report highlighted that 2.7 million manufacturing workers will require significant upskilling by 2028.


Aging Workforce

The manufacturing industry is grappling with an aging workforce, with many experienced employees nearing retirement age.

NAM's report indicated that approximately 2.69 million manufacturing workers would retire or leave the workforce between 2018 and 2028.


Labor Shortage

According to a report by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute, an estimated 2.4 million manufacturing jobs may go unfilled in the United States by 2028 due to the skills gap.

Traditional retention-based compensation creates administrative headaches and unnecessary expense



Clawbacks are expensive to enforce and many end up unenforceable.

Tax Complexities

Paying taxes up front leads to countless hours wasted on preventable W2 corrections.

Manual Tracking

Many track sign-on and retention bonuses manually, making automation and scalable edits difficult.
