The Silver Crescent Foundation now offers a best-practice employee engagement survey with global benchmarks validated specifically for manufacturers! The SCMES is an employee survey instrument for manufacturers to measure, manage and continuously improve employee engagement.

The Silver Crescent Foundation is a South Carolina Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation 501(C) (3) that serves manufacturing by developing and executing programs, conferences and/or exhibitions that stimulate discussion and positively influence the economic vitality and future of manufacturing in South Carolina. Silver Crescent Foundation initiatives promote manufacturing excellence, innovation, positive public image, student career exploration, workforce readiness, talent recruitment and other educational endeavors that serve the non-political interests of manufacturing, the long-term economic health and vibrancy of manufacturing and the citizens of the state of South Carolina.

Current Silver Crescent Foundation programs include The Silver Crescent Award for Manufacturing Excellence, 7 Crescents of Excellence ™  application and award process; the annual Salute to Manufacturing Awards luncheon where manufacturers are recognized by their peers and state leaders for their dedication to manufacturing excellence and economic vitality; Best-Practices Forums that acquaint manufacturing executives with non-proprietary best-practice processes and continuous innovation systems that enable their businesses to thrive; and Camp Success which acquaints middle-school students with the “coolness” of making things, advanced manufacturing facilities and internships/careers in manufacturing.
