Addressing Transit Issues to Improve Employee Retention
Easing Employees' Journey to Work
Retention is a common issue among manufacturers, exacerbated by lack of access to public transit – particularly in the off-shifts. Find out how Maple Lodge Farms helped address the issue.
In this session, EMC Member Maple Lodge Farms (a large food processing company in Brampton, ON), will share their path and journey towards addressing the issue of lack of public transit for their employees. Hear how they have been able to work with a transit service provider, as they improve their recruitment and retention efforts by implementing an innovative solution for this problem. Small, medium, and large manufacturers alike can garner some tips and ideas that they can adopt for their own facilities.
