It’s no secret that finding and keeping good employees in manufacturing is tough these days. Yet hiring employees is just a start to creating a strong work force. Next, you have to keep them.

While manufacturing employees tend to be hard-working and loyal, keeping those employees content and engaged with your company should be of paramount importance in this time of talent shortages. 

Today’s production-driven and pressure-filled manufacturing environment can easily leave employees feeling overworked, undervalued and not appreciated. Taking steps to foster a positive work environment in your organization can encourage retention and also serve as a valuable benefit when recruiting employees.

One of the most powerful tools to improve employee retention is the “stay” interview. These structured conversations between manager/supervisor and their direct reports can be used to determine what it is that keeps employees there and more importantly what may result in their leaving.

During this webinar we address:

  • What does turnover REALLY cost?
  • Foundational retention principles
  • The concept and essential ingredients of stay interviews
  • How to implement an effective stay interview process in your organization
  • Integrating stay interviews with exit and employee surveys
