It Depends On What State You Are In!!
While there may be disagreement as to the current status of the work environment, most intelligent/competent people would agree that unemployment is low and the job market is beginning to tighten. The U.S. unemployment rate is at a sixteen (16) year low - 4.3%. In fact, there are 73 counties in the United States with unemployment rates of 2% or less based upon recent Bureau of Labor statistics. In this type of environment, talented Employees in your employ will be in higher demand, especially in a highly competitive industrial environment. Whether or not some have the perception of "manufacturing jobs" as "dirty work or low class" or that being "college educated" is an absolute requirement, the availability of experienced personnel with manufacturing skills is a growing talent shortage. While you may have in place Confidentiality, Non-Solicitation and Non-Compete Agreements, these documents, in and of themselves, do not totally protect an Employer. Employers must have a plan in place to address and deal with the unexpected departure of an Employee.
