Workforce Solutions Provider, MAU, Launches MAU Ascent To Elevate Advanced Manufacturing Talent

AUGUSTA, Ga. — February 15, 2024 —MAU Inc., an industrial workforce solutions provider, today announced the launch of its MAU Ascent suite of services to identify, recruit, and activate the uniquely skilled talent needed to optimize advanced manufacturing technologies and complex, automated operations. MAU Ascent talent experts build the skilled teams manufacturers need to thrive in automated, connected and rapidly growing environment, enabling their clients’ internal teams to put greater focus on core, critical operations.

“More than a decade ago, in a book called ‘The Birth of a New Workforce,’ I wrote about the need for manufacturers to adopt an innovative, blended workforce model — combining internal, temporary, and outsourced labor — enabling both workforce agility and strategic focus,” said Randy Hatcher, CEO of MAU. “More recently, professors at MIT and other industry experts have coined the term ‘workforce ecosystem’ to describe the model. If the advanced manufacturing workforce was still in its ‘infancy’ when I wrote the book, its current life stage is adolescence. It is still ‘growing into’ the full realization of its potential and the need for an innovative workforce model is greater than ever.”

MAU Ascent is driven by the conviction that Industry 4.0 is people powered and the pace of technological change demands an innovative workforce ecosystem approach that fosters an elevated level of talent, organizational resilience, and agility. “Agility is a quality that is fundamentally led not by technology but by the adaptability, innovation, and collaboration of people. MAU Ascent gives advanced manufacturers the tool kit to build an agile, blended workforce made up of the right people at the right time,” said Doug Duncan, president, Manufacturing and Supply Chain for MAU.

The MAU Ascent solution suite includes:

  • MAU Ascent Recruiting: MAU’s focused team of advanced manufacturing recruiting experts identifies, assesses, and onboards the critical, direct-hire talent needed for technology-intensive manufacturing and distribution facilities. The team is committed to ensuring that your organization is equipped with the leadership talent as well as the operational skill to succeed.
  • MAU Ascent RPO: MAU brings systematic rigor to recruitment process outsourcing services, handling targeted high-volume hiring for new facilities, expanded production lines and hard-to-fill digital manufacturing and supply chain roles. The firm’s RPO experts help advanced manufacturing companies rapidly inject new, skilled talent into the workforce ecosystem when it is needed the most.
  • MAU Ascent MPO: MAU’s on-site manufacturing process outsourcing enables manufacturers to embed trained MAU Ascent talent into critical, non-core operations. Our MPO solutions free your internal, core teams to maintain intense focus on critical production priorities.

While Recruiting, RPO and MPO are not new services for MAU, the new MAU Ascent offerings are enhanced and tailored to benefit advanced manufacturing and smart supply chain organizations and their complex workforce needs. MAU Ascent solutions are led by dedicated experts committed to continuous process improvement and true partnership.

“MAU Ascent helps manufacturers secure specialized skills to maximize advanced manufacturing and supply chain technologies. It is a strong step forward on MAU’s journey to sharpen our client focus, elevate the industrial workforce and improve lives,” Hatcher said.
