Metalforming Exec Recognized for Championing Worker Skills

Friday, April 1, 2016

The National Skills Coalition (NSC) has awarded its 2016 Skills Champion Award to Erick Ajax, vice president and co-owner of metalformer E.J. Ajax and Sons, Fridley, MN. The annual award recognizes an NSC member whose exceptional organizing and advocacy efforts have moved the skills agenda forward in their state or in Washington, D.C. Ajax, who has worked with NSC for a decade, “has been an outstanding advocate for effective workforce policies, particularly those that leverage and build upon private sector investments,” says an NSC official. E.J. Ajax invests more than 5.5 percent of its annual payroll in employee education, and believes in the value of employer-led partnerships to prepare workers for jobs within the industry.
