Expanding the Stream of Manufacturing Talent

Traditionally we think of developing a “talent pipeline”.  This session will expand the thinking of a larger “talent stream”.  Instead of a talent pipeline strategy closed off to the outside world, with only two access points, and limited capacity, think about a stream with endless entry points, possibilities for widening, and total transparency for all to see the beauty of the entire flow as an inspiration for others to want to take a swim.

Manufacturing Stream Expansion Continued

We know one of the big challenges facing manufacturers today is the availability of an engaged, trained and diverse workforce.  There are a lot of resource partners that can assist with these challenges which is why we are doubling up on this topic!

Retention, Talent Development and Culture

During this rapid fire session, you will learn about ways to create a culture that is attractive to retaining a diverse workforce, assistance for incumbent worker training, and ways to leverage this work environment to be a key element for your recruiting strategy.
