Webcast: Recruiting & Retaining Top Talent

As the economy improves, many organizations that have delayed hiring will find themselves in a significant catch-up mode. Even as manufacturers look to expand hiring to meet production and growth needs in an improving economy, there will be a lot of competition to recruit and retain young talent.

As the economy improves, many organizations that have delayed hiring will find themselves in a significantcatch-up mode. Even as manufacturers look to expand hiring to meet production and growth needs in animproving economy, there will be a lot of competition to recruit and retain young talent.

This Plant Engineering Webcast will discuss ways that organizations have to re-think their recruiting and retentionstrategies, such as:

  • Technology is changing so rapidly that employers need to recruit not only for the job that is open but toensure that new employees can adapt to technology advances
  • Understanding the nuances (both pros and cons) of the millennial generation will be paramount forsuccess in recruiting and retention
  • While temp-to-hire programs have been in vogue for the last several years, they are completelyinadequate to tap into the vast number of people who are underemployed due to the past economiccrisis. The lack of immediate benefits is a show-stopper for many people who are underemployed. They cannot risk the three to six-month period of having little-to-no health care coverage.
  • Organizations need to take advantage of the pending downsizing of the U.S. military. Specific strategiesneed to be developed to attract and retain ex-military personnel. These potential employees are well-trained and have proven themselves in the best armed services in the world.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
