Innovation Workforce Visionary Award

Engineered Profiles is proud to employ an incredible team of associates. It is a point of pride for the company that we are able to employ and support members of the community. Working with outreach programs has been an excellent way for Engineered Profiles to find high quality associates as well as give individuals a second chance at a productive career. Engineered Profiles is honored to not only attend the TAPP Project Conference, but to receive the Workforce Visionary Award.

TAPP (Training Assessment Placement Project) was started in 2015 as a way to help restored citizens and military veterans find gainful employment in the manufacturing sector. Engineered Profiles was the first company to take on a TAPP associate, and currently has the largest number of program participants. Engineered Profiles has also participated in helping with the development of training materials and audio visual assets for TAPP to use in its ongoing mission. TAPP is a privately run organization in association with Polymer Ohio, Military Veterans Resource Center, Ohio Department of Rehabilitation & Correction, and VM Consulting.

On hand to accept the award on behalf of Engineered Profiles was Vice President of Workforce Development Brad Lamone. “The TAPP Project has exceeded all of our expectations; our participation authenticates our core value of giving back to the local community,” said Lamone. “It’s very gratifying to be able to give people a second chance while finding reliable and talented employees. This is a win-win and we are quite honored by this award.” Lamone was joined at the event by Engineered Profiles associates Katie Fazekas, Stacey Chatman, and Brandon Moskal.
