It's time to focus on how manufacturers are engaging employees in order to remain competitive, shorten the growing skills gap, and address the work/life balance requirements of the current and future workforce. Not only does a strong employee engagement strategy help retain your most valuable employees, but it also can help boost your organization's overall performance levels, resulting in a more productive workforce. Now more than ever it is imperative to look at your current labor strategy and scheduling processes specifically -- they may be impacting your employee engagement more than you think.

How will YOU create and manage an environment that engages employees? Join Terry Ketterer, manager, value consulting at Kronos, as well as John Frehse, managing partner at Core Practice, for this IndustryWeek webinar to understand how your shift schedules and a flexible labor strategy can help give your employees the ability to maintain a work/life balance, increase employee engagement, and drive better business outcomes.

  • Learn how workforce management -- in the face of the skills gap -- can engage your employees and give them the shift flexibility they want and need
  • Find out how to hire and retain high-performing employees by hearing best practices on how to optimize your labor strategies, with a focus on shift schedules
