Webinar: Town Hall | Solving the labour crisis: today’s key workforce strategy decisions

May 26th, 2022 10:30-12:00PM

In a tight job market, employers are navigating a minefield of staffing and supply challenges.

For many, overtime and unpredictable scheduling are contributing to fatigue and burnout with a stretched and increasingly aging workforce. And with the highest turnover rates many businesses have ever experienced, they are scrambling to find, train, and retain qualified workers.

In the search for solutions, employers are rethinking training and compensation programs, incentives and recognition. More manufacturers are turning to operational redesign and automation to streamline production. Through innovation, they are creating more attractive job opportunities and reducing injury riskā€”but with those benefits also comes a growing skills gap.

In this webinar you will learn

  • Where and how employers are finding new workers – and how their investments in health, safety, and culture contribute to keeping them.
  • What support is available to employers to help reskill workers, and to provide the training they need to succeed and stay safe in new roles.
  • Unique training programs employers are using to attract new hires and broaden their available talent pool.
  • The importance of defining training standards for OHS professionals to support industry’s evolving needs.
  • How an investment in automation can address both worker shortages and workplace injury risk – and where you can look for advice and funding to support it.
