" Laborers tend not to have résumés
There's often
hesitancy to take a
manufacturing job
they know nothing
about. We need
to make that
process easier.

and are likelier to be found through
social media, local advertisements
and temporary agencies, " he says.
" Administrative, sales and technology
jobs are more often found on
recruitment sites and via headhunters. "
As for keeping them once hired,
building close relationships between
leadership and staff plays an important
role in his retention strategy.
This involves senior management
proactively identifying and responding
to employee issues, working alongside
them, company barbecues, having
one-on-one lunches (Skrzynski takes
an employee to lunch weekly) and
creating a " family-type " environment.
" People mostly quit because they
don't like their jobs or leadership. You'd
think it was money, but job satisfaction
and the ability to grow with the
company is what keeps people around, "
he says. " I feel you have to show a
genuine interest in their personal and
professional life and help them achieve
their goals. "
Focusing on retention is smart,
particularly since Sorenson expects
hiring to remain difficult into 2022 as
mammoth companies like McDonald's,
Walmart and Amazon are offering
higher starting wages-a contagion
that is spreading (Costco and
Starbucks recently announced
starting-wage increases).

cheaper to keep the customer you
have than it is to bring in a new one;
the same holds true for employees, " he
says. " Benefit programs, engagement
training for managers and supervisors,
pay-rate evaluations and workplace
flexibility all play a role in retaining
current employees. "
As for money, although it's always
among the top-five motivators, it's
seldom, if ever, number one, Sorenson
says. As such, companies need to learn
what motivates individual employees,
as this is different for every person.
" The worst thing a company can
do is develop a new employee benefit
without first talking to employees. Too
often I've seen companies spend time
and energy developing a new program
for employees only to see a 5 percent
utilization. They developed something
the employees didn't want or see the
value in. "
