Issues affecting the workforce today are both immediate—such as the aging out of many experienced baby boomers —and long term—such as meeting employees’ changed expectations of workplace flexibility, pay, career paths, and innovative benefits.

Onboarding and retaining people who are new to the workforce has become such a challenge that some manufacturers are now hiring as many as 50 to 70 people per quarter, hoping to retain a third of them. Obviously, this cycle is not efficient or sustainable.

Developing first-time employees’ soft skills may help them become “workforce ready.” Teaching all employees how to communicate effectively, for example, provides the foundation for a positive work culture. It enables conversation about teamwork, professionalism, and dealing with conflict. A positive company culture is essential for employers today.

Download this guide to learn key areas to cover when onboarding first-time employees:
• Accessing Resources
• Interpersonal Skills
• Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
• Communication Skills
• Adapting to Change
• Teamwork
• Conflict Management
