Strategies to recruit and retain the youngest generation of skilled workers

Since 2010, skilled trades have been the most difficult jobs to fill. Over the next decade, there will be 3.4 million manufacturing jobs—of which an estimated 2 million will go unfilled. The number of job openings combined with the lack of available labor supply means that existing workers have the freedom to hop from job to job, leaving managers and leaders scratching their heads and asking, “If we finally get these young workers in the door, what can we do differently to keep them from walking out?” 

Whether your company is part of the skilled trade industry, or in the services business, this workshop will unpack what employers can do NOW - and in the near future - to recruit top young talent, retain them, and engage them day to day. 

This workshop will provide owners, managers, and leaders:

  • Insight into how every generation shows up at work and why
  • Practical solutions to better recruit next-generation talent
  • Challenges to embrace new approaches and tactics
  • Tips for adapting your communication style to connect with younger generations
