Manufacturers are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in different ways. Some are surge hiring to produce essential products, while others are scaling back or laying off valuable workers. Though there is uncertainty about the future, one thing is for sure: when the crisis is over, a trained and ready workforce will be critical to our economic recovery.

In anticipation of that day, we have developed a series of webinars to address specific aspects of onboarding and training that are applicable whether your business is surge hiring to address critical shortages or gearing up to restart production. These FREE, one-hour sessions will help you prepare your workforce for the challenges ahead.
