The manufacturing industry is constantly talking about workforce recruitment and retention. It's been a big topic on the podcast for several years, as well, and approaches are changing.


This week, we're sharing some of the recruitment and retention secrets that you may have missed during this year's episodes. We've pulled together some of the best tactics from great leaders across the state to help you make some additions or changes to your recruitment and retention strategy.


We also threw in some updated (and positive!) plans from Connecticut's Department of Economic and Community Development that are helping to support the growth of the CT workforce as both manufacturing and as a whole.


Kick off your 2024 recruitment with a bang! 


Ari Santiago, CEO, CompassMSP
