Attracting and retaining a skilled workforce  Key strategies for becoming an employer of choice in the work truck industry

Like other business sectors, the work truck industry will be reliant on younger workers to replace a retiring workforce; and there are some significant hurdles, including misperceptions about a lack of innovation and career opportunity. The scarcity of skilled talent for the highly technical jobs needed compounds the issue. Declining technical education in U.S. high schools and a dearth of trade schools have created a drastic shortage of qualified employees for the commercial vehicle community. 

To close the skills gap and become an employer of choice among younger workers, companies must understand the changing talent landscape and adopt new methods for recruiting, retaining and developing employees. This 45-minute webinar will share successful strategies for attracting and engaging next-generation talent and developing strong pipelines of committed leaders and employees at your organization. 

Registration for NTEA webinars is free to members. 

Presenter: Amy Hirsh Robinson, Principal, Interchange Group
