Eastern Ontario Training Board Promotes Jobs for You
The Eastern Ontario Training Board has been promoting entry-level manufacturing jobs in the region, and has increased the number of applicants for the participating businesses. The training board posted videos and pictures to better inform specific eastern Ontario communities about the local job opportunities available.
Analytics of the Eastern Ontario Training Board’s social media campaigns showed that Facebook was the most effective medium for informing the community, and posts which featured workers were shared more often. The featured company’s employees loved being spotlighted on social media, and the campaign also helped to showcase the company’s culture and benefits.
If you haven’t done so already, adding content about your employees and the culture of your company to your social media accounts will help with talent attraction for the younger generation. Millennials in particular want to know that the work they are doing is fulfilling and that the company supports its employees, has a driving mission, and is doing good in the community.
Free Training to Improve Attraction and Retention
On top of getting promotion in play for manufacturers, the Eastern Ontario Training Board also offered one-on-one sessions with an HR expert. Employers discussed their current attraction and retention strategies and got advice about how to improve.
The Eastern Ontario Training Board then offered group training sessions to improve retention strategies based on the data collected during these one-on-one interviews. The greater the participation rate of local employers, the better the sessions and strategies were tailored. As more information is gathered on what businesses need, the training board will be better equipped to obtain more funding and provide greater services to the manufacturers of eastern Ontario.
