KidGlov, a boutique marketing and advertising agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., recently welcomed Bryan Seck, chief talent management strategist of Kawasaki, to its podcast, Agency for Change. The episode explored how Kawasaki has been a powerful influence in Lincoln, Neb. for nearly 50 years.
“Kawasaki is an incredible employer and producer in Lincoln,” said Katie Ripa, KidGlov vice president account director. “Bryan’s diverse professional experience, spanning from New York City to the Peace Corps, leans a unique perspective to recruitment and connecting people with jobs.”
Kawasaki started full-scale production of motorcycles over a half century ago. The company now produces ATVs, jet skis and more, employing nearly 3,100 people nationwide. The Kawasaki production factory in Lincoln, Neb., was opened in the early 1970s and has become a powerful employer in the capital city. Kawasaki’s tagline, “Let the good times roll(R)”, is recognized worldwide and the brand is synonymous with powerful, stylish and category-leading vehicles.
As chief talent management strategist at Kawasaki, Seck’s work focuses on growing the Kawasaki workforce. “Recently, Kawasaki announced a $200 million plus expansion. So not only do we need to retain our workforce, which is challenging in today’s environment, but we also need to grow,” said Seck. “There are a lot of underemployed people in Lincoln who are working multiple part-time jobs to make ends meet. At Kawasaki, we pay a living wage plus incredible benefits and long-term opportunities. Stability is the end of poverty. If we can create stability for families, we can reduce poverty.”
During the podcast, Seck dives into the challenges of recruitment in today’s environment, his approach to employment challenges and advice for leaders who want to make a difference in the world.
