Boost your Knoxville manufacturing recruitment with PR

Nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee, Knoxville is known for being a gateway to the national park, its vibrant community of food and craft beer fans and of course, the Vols.

What people, even many locals, may not realize is that Knoxville is also quite a center for manufacturing. In fact, more than 700 manufacturing establishments exist throughout Knoxville proper and the greater MSA.Skyline of Knoxville, TN

These companies produce parts and finished goods that supply a stunning variety of industries. They stimulate our economy, create jobs for our longtime neighbors and even attract new skilled talent to our community. While this is all fantastic for Knoxville as a whole, if you’re one of the manufacturers in question, you know that the actual recruiting game can be intensely competitive play.

Beyond recruiters and hiring companies, did you know that PR is a great way to attract the right employees?

If you partner with the right agency, you can work with their team to keep your values, benefits and attractive compensation packages top-of-mind for picky job seekers. For skilled trades and manufacturing, the market still favors the employee, so it’s critical to stand out and capture the attention of the best applicants.

At Ripley PR, we specialize in manufacturing public relations and have a deep understanding of the labor market. As a Knoxville PR agency, we’re also passionate about telling the story of our community.
