The demand for people in manufacturing jobs is growing. The orthopedic device industry must attract and retain employees who are engaged, feel valued and take pride in the quality of their work.
Market reports indicate that turnover rates are high, unemployment rates are at an all-time low and Baby Boomers are retiring. To hire and retain workers, manufacturing organizations need a clear structure in place to create a rich developmental experience for employees. Orchid has taken a project management approach to employee training and development processes at our largest manufacturing facility. This presentation reviews our efforts and the impact they’ve had on employee attraction, retention and customer service. With a robust orientation program, clear career path structures and cross-training, employees are confident and proud to work in orthopedic device manufacturing.
