Maximising Employee Performance in the METS world Webinar Series: Part 2 - Recruitment & Retention in Difficult Markets

Your staff are critical to the success of your business.  Having the right people, in the right jobs, at the right time, and having them operate at peak performance is what we aspire to. However, for small to medium sized METS companies, without dedicated human resource departments, this can be a challenging exercise that poses considerable risk if not done properly.

Over the course of three webinars, Austmine’s Business Advisors will deliver key advice and explore real-world case studies to help small to medium businesses better understand the HR process and adopt strategies suitable for that size business.

Webinar 2 – Recruitment & Retention in Difficult Markets

Many METS companies are presently competing for the most difficult positions to fill in the country – capable engineers and experienced tradespeople.

This webinar seeks to identify, reinforce and build on the basic elements of employee recruitment and retention. We will utilise industry examples to provide guidance on how to stick to such a recruitment program, no matter the market noise and difficulties arising.

Topics covered include:

  • Recruitment – basic Principles
  • Employee retention through employee engagement
  • Job scope – should I go after a generalist and “hope for the best”, or seek the specialist skills I need from the market?
  • How to recruit from other industries
  • How do I recruit for attitude then train the skills?
