What sets LEAD Great Lakes apart? One of twelve LEAD locations, LEAD Great Lakes hand-picks and evaluates all skilled trade team members for placement with client companies. “LEAD’s proprietary recruiting methodology and management of our trade network is built to honor our Service Excellence pledge,” says Carla Knapp, sales manager at LEAD Great Lakes, specializing in skilled trades, shipyards, manufacturing, and wastewater in the Midwest.

LEAD Great Lakes employs trade associates who exhibit drive and integrity along with industry skills. Each trades or craftsperson, at a minimum, is screened and filtered according to distinct parameters of the following:

  • Work Eligibility through E-Verify
  • New Employee Orientation
  • Job Specific Credentials
  • Site Specific Training
  • PPE Issuance
  • Review of Application & Work History
  • Personal Interview
  • Trade / Skill Verification
  • Reference Verification
  • 7 Year National Background Check
  • 10 Panel Drug Screen

The average individual tenure of our associates is at least a decade in the skilled trade industries of Marine, Commercial Construction and Industrial segments. We are committed to our skilled trade workers, and retain valued employees by offering them a best-in-class benefit program inclusive of a 401k plan, paid holidays and sick leave, plus multiple options of affordable health care plans.

Carla says LEAD Great Lakes is dedicated to safety. “In fact, LEAD’s safety record extends to participation with ISNet World where we earned a 100% score on our Safety Program from the RAVS team.” Additionally, LEAD’s Experience Modification Rating (EMR) is better than average at .9682. EMR is a calculation used by insurance firms to price the cost of worker’s compensation premiums and indicates LEAD is found to be less risky than the majority of other contractors, explains Carla.
