TU41: Looking for New Woodworking Hires? How to Build A New Hire Pipeline

Mark Smith

Having trouble finding new hires? You can’t do use the same old recruiting methods in our current workforce environment. Albert Einstein said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Developing a pipeline at your local educational institution (high school, community college) is a great way to find new hires but requires an insider understanding of how these institutions think and operate. This session will give you pipeline building insights from a 30-year veteran of the wood industry and the education system. You will hear about 32 different ways you can positively affect how the education system views your industry to begin building a pipeline for new woodworking hires.
