“The Hunt Continues”

April 13, 2020 – COVID-19 is no excuse to end your search for high quality employees. By Lynn Shelton, VP of Marketing.

365体育平台Most manufacturers came to value advice from creative HR professionals as they confronted the challenges of operating through the once-upon-a-time worker shortage.

Minnesota’s economic comeback will likely involve a whole new set of employee-related trials—and no one can yet tell us what they will be. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare. I asked Alissa Henriksen, principal and owner of  to give 365体育平台me some insights about what manufacturers should be thinking about. She’s one of my favorite experts in this field, and she didn’t disappoint. In fact, I liked her advice so much, I’m just going to reprint it here, straight from her:

  1. Re-evaluate your job descriptions. We don’t revisit them often enough. This is your first impression with prospective employees. Take time to rewrite and redesign your job descriptions to provide a clearly-defined overview of the position and your culture—and make sure they are eye catching.
  2. Add an employer branding page to your website. More than 63 percent of applicants will go to your website to research YOU. Make sure you help them fall more in love with your company and how it supports your employees.
