The Avalign business model is built around providing P2P Partnership with our clients. Meaning that we partner with our customers to deliver their product to market from prototype to production (P2P). This full lifecycle product management philosophy is at the core of what we do and gives us the ability to think about the product with a long-term lens.
We approach our relationship with our employees with the same mindset. Adopting our own employee lifecycle model, we want you to feel our commitment to your development from the moment you step into our plant to your last day in the office. Our employee lifecycle model is simple – Learn. Grow. Advance.
Every employee, like every client, needs a customized career path and here at Avalign, custom is in our DNA.
Every employee who joins Avalign has an onboarding plan designed to provide the tools needed to do your job from Day 1 to Day 365. We ensure all employees understand our business, receive on-the-job training and have time with peers/leaders to address questions. We look for folks who are naturally curious and seek to understand whether working a forklift or polishing spinal implants.
Our plant leaders take pride in building excellent teams. With our commitment to innovation, this requires flexible and eager employees who can embrace process, system and equipment change on an almost monthly basis. We take the time to teach, provide ample opportunities to learn and hold our employees accountable to results.
We know that there are a lot of opportunities for highly skilled candidates in our markets. That's why we sponsor internship programs designed to build the future talent pipeline for our company and our industry. We work closely with local technical high schools to provide high-tech manufacturing internship experiences. Our partnerships in schools like the Auburn Technical School in Mentor, OH helps students get real-life factory experience and exposure to advanced technologies that can help shape their interest in our industry.
We provide apprenticeship opportunities for recent graduates of technical college, university, and masters programs.Each of our plants have connections with local schools and have the autonomy to develop a program that is reflective of their communities needs.
Our performance management approach isn’t just about a rating score at the end of the year. Our leaders are committed to providing daily, weekly and monthly feedback to employees to encourage high performance and professional growth.
