If you are looking for the best-skilled workers for your manufacturing business, it is becoming increasingly difficult to attract those valuable employees to your industry. For your new hires to become a permanent part of your business, you also need to find individuals who are motivated to learn new skills, can multi-task excellently and can be responsible for maintaining the quality of your services. Many job hunters may not realize what a career in manufacturing can bring them. Therefore it can be a challenging task to recruit manufacturing employees and inform them of the benefits of this business. However, there are four actions you can take to do your part to attract the very best manufacturing employees.
Offer Competitive Pay and Benefits
The majority of prospective manufacturing employees will first consider a company’s pay and benefits as they apply for a position. If your company offers insurance and a reasonable wage for your employees, you are demonstrating to prospective hires that you have respect for your employees. These benefits can also help retain employees once you bring them on board.
Increase Interest Through Social Media
When you consider how much time people spend on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, you will realize how crucial connecting to applicants through these platforms can be. Posting ads on social media will help attract new applicants of all backgrounds and interests. Who knows? Someone who never considered the manufacturing business might see an ad that opens their eyes to the benefits of this industry.
Team Up with Local Schools to Engage Talent Early
Paying visits to high school shop classes or other local programs relevant to the manufacturing industry can help you grab the interest and attention of candidates before they need a job. This way, they may be more likely to gravitate towards you when they are ready to look for a job, and if they are already familiar with your company, they come in with valuable knowledge you don’t need to teach them.
Partner with a Staffing Agency
While the above options require efforts from your company, hiring a staffing agency means that someone else does the hard work of finding new hires for you. A staffing agency like First Team Staffing can gather information from you about your company and use that to find the very best candidates. Plus, a staffing agency is already working with people who are actively seeking work and will have gone through a thorough interview process, which ensures that the staffing agency feels confident in recommending this candidate.
