Toolkit Standardizes Entry-Level Hiring, Onboarding

The Entry-Level Learn-and-Earn (ELLE) toolkit is designed to make it easier for manufacturers to hire and onboard entry-level employees who have no prior manufacturing experience. The toolkit outlines a step-by-step process to help Industry Sector Partnerships and their manufacturing partners execute a systematic process intended to result in a higher percentage of successfully retained employees. The ELLE process covers all phases of the hiring process, including recruiting, pre-screening, pre-employment training, job placement and on-the-job support. Get in touch with your Regional Industry Sector Partnership for assistance.
