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.

  • Approaches to reskilling workers and providing the training they need to succeed and stay safe in new roles

  • How leveragingĀ automation can help address worker shortages and workplace injury risk ā€“ creating better and safer work
  • Strategies employersĀ are using to attract new hires and broaden their available talent pool
