Webinar: Which White Collar Employee Retention Strategies Are Effective in Blue Collar Environments?

For nearly a decade, organizations have been trying to improve employee engagement in white-collar workplaces. Everyone has been looking for the magic formula that will reduce turnover below the national average of around 16%. Pulse surveys, employee recognition, corporate wellness, and other strategies are being employed in most offices these days to measure and improve culture more effectively.

However, nearly half of the US workforce does not sit at a desk and unemployment is at an all-time low for hourly workers. Especially in places like warehouses, distribution centers, and retail environments, we’re seeing turnover of anywhere between 30% and 300%. There is no doubt that this hits the bottom line for employers, and it’s no longer written off as a cost of doing business.

In this webinar, hear from Lisa Harrington, Senior Research Scholar at the University of Maryland Center for Public Policy and Private Enterprise, Bill Harmon, former CHRO and enterprise HR consultant, and the leadership team at 1A Auto, one of the US’s most successful e-commerce companies, as they discuss best practices for making employees feel a sense of engagement and loyalty even in the most difficult environments.

What you’ll learn:
– What you should know about the labor gap, why it exists, and what you can do about it.
– How communications are critical to engagement in any culture and any environment.
– How to best leverage HR tools to improve turnover.
– Best practices and learnings from fellow HR practitioners who have championed growth of a positive culture.
