It’s not uncommon for manufacturers and food processors to see extremely high turnover rates. And turnover is expensive. A study by the Center for American Progress reveals that it costs at least 16% of annual pay, which adds up quick. So, how do you stop the revolving door of employees?

Join Bill Cunningham of SugarCreek on Intertek Alchemy’s webinar, as he shares the five steps for building an effective employee retention program. You’ll learn why investing in your employees is investing in your company’s future. Bill will also speak to the success of his STAY program, which led to an 800% improvement in employee retention!

We’ll cover:

  • How to positively engage with your employees
  • Building trust through the STAY process
  • How to calculate the cost of employee turnover
  • The financial benefits of employee retention
  • The power of branding your programs
