SBCA Webinar: Hiring Smarter for Production (Truss Life - Part 1)

SBCA Webinar: Hiring Smarter for Production (Truss Life - Part 1)

Date: Tue, May 8 2018 1:00pm to 2:00pm (CDT)

In today’s tight labor market, component manufacturers are competing with a variety of different industries for the same people. Since every new hire’s assimilation into the plant’s value chain has an immediate impact on its efficiency and the team members that operate it, it is imperative that we try and get the best fit possible. In order to stop the revolving door of production employees, a company must hire smarter. To do so, it must first align its mindset on how to best identify ideal people with ideal behaviors. Kick off this three-part “Truss Life” series with a closer look at how understanding Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs will change the way you hire (and retain!) production employees. Designed for owners, management and HR professionals, this webinar will explore some of the tools available to help companies assess candidates and find people who don’t just want to build components – they want to build careers!  WATCH NOW

Speaker
Luis Arrarte is the HR Director at A-1 Roof Trusses in Fort Pierce, Florida. With more than a decade of successful staffing experience, Luis has been instrumental in managing 30 percent year-over-year growth at A-1 since he joined the components industry almost four years ago. He speaks passionately about how understanding human needs can transform a company’s hiring and retention outcomes and build a healthy culture of engagement and growth. 

Established in 1977, part of A-1’s mission is to “champion an environment of teamwork.” As they celebrate 41 years in business, the “Truss Life” theme was launched at the beginning of this year as a way of introducing A-1 employees to the thinking behind this new initiative for fostering increased engagement and healthy dialogue in their operations.
