15th February 2023:  Recruiting and Retaining High Quality Staff

The employment landscape has changed profoundly in Australia.

Companies can no longer assume that there will be plenty of people willing to work in their plant. There is strong competition from other manufacturers, but even more from other industry sectors.

How can companies in Die Casting and Forging attract and retain suitable people?

How can they appeal to people with:

  • the right thought processes
  • the patience to do it properly
  • a pride in achievement
  • a desire to learn more

A big part of the solution is providing the right training as people progress in the business.

This is a joint ADCA/AFI presentation at which a panel of experts will give their views on how this can be achieved.

Peter Michelini – Harvester Technical College, TTC Manager and Technology Teacher
Peter Canavan – Ai Group, Centre for Education and Training, Senior Policy Officer
Cameron McLeod – Headstart,  Employer Engagement Co-ordinator
Sam Tyagi – CEO, Australian Institute of Engineering
Sean Boswell – Backwell IXL, General Manager
Paul Friswell – GOTafe, Trainer

Come along and pick up some new ideas on how to tackle these perennial issues.
