When you have a flexible company that prides it’self on adaptability to change and provides an opportunity to further train existing staff, you maybe able to offer temporary positions within your company to train up new semi-skilled workers.
With the state of the job market these day’s it’s hard for some people without university education to get the required skills they need to work in the fields they wish to work in. So if your company has the ability to offer training programs for semi-skilled workers then it’s a great opportunity for you to start putting a system in place to train them up.
You may be worried about what will go wrong having semi-skilled workers working in your company, but if you have them in a controlled setting and have the staff to train them then you can start them on something small and see how well they work in that environment and how quickly they complete a given task.
This will also promote a very good image for your company, and overall make it a better place to work in for your staff.
