INTELLIGENT GENERATIONS AT WORK
We celebrate our senior aviation team members who bring many years of technical expertise and deliver high-quality service to our customers while also taking the time to train and help the new team members in the aviation industry. Creating a business with a long-time horizon requires employees from multiple generations maintain the legacy. Knowing that aviation as an industry will experience a labor shortage of workers, GA Telesis has focused its talent management initiatives on retaining experienced team members and recruiting the next generation.
Through the summer internship program where college and high school students are hired temporarily to work alongside experienced professionals, the Company builds a talent pipeline. Sponsorship of local schools like George T. Baker, a technical school in Miami, serves a large student population of Hispanic and African American students and partnerships with Broward College.
In Finland, the Traineeship program, which recruits early career candidates to join the Company, has successfully graduated many candidates who continue to advance their career in the Company. GA Telesis is positioned to remain relevant long into the future.
