An Aviation Today webinar, March 13, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (ET)

A company is only as good as its people - an old axiom that’s particularly true in the high-tech, high-stakes business of aviation. And yet, aviation companies in all niches continue to report a chronic inability to recruit, train and retain sufficiently skilled workers.

How can your business win the fierce competition for talented employees? That’s the subject of this new webinar.

Jobs for crucial positions, such as pilot, mechanic and engineer, go begging or are plagued by high turnover. Paradoxically, aviation continues to enjoy unprecedented prosperity, despite the spectre of recession that haunts the rest of the overall economy. Much of this growth in aviation is propelled by an ever-expanding backlog of aircraft orders and a pressing demand for maintenance work.

You’ll learn the following practical information:

  • As experienced pilots retire and older ones are restricted in the amount of hours they can fly, how can operators get the men and women they need to fly their aircraft?
  • The avionics industry is burgeoning with new growth and innovations, and yet companies are experiencing difficulty in finding capable engineers with the right skills. How can companies compete for the best engineering talent? Which hiring and retention policies are worth emulating?
  • Demand for maintenance is mushrooming, as passenger miles and orders for new aircraft increase. Moreover, upkeep on aging aircraft can no longer be deferred. These factors all translate into huge demand for skilled mechanics - and yet, maintenance shops are having trouble filling their slots. How can the MRO field find the right people for the right job - and what are the best policies to keep them?
  • How can online Job Boards assist Human Resources managers in their quest to create the best workplace?
  • What are the ramifications for air safety in all of this workplace turmoil?

... and lots more!
