PBJ How Oregon Works: Attracting and Retaining Skilled Employees


For the manufacturing segment of Portland Business Journal’s How Oregon Works series, Stoel Rives labor and employment law attorney Karen O’Connor contributed an article titled “Attracting and Retaining Skilled Employees,” published November 2, 2018. In the article, O’Connor suggests a few fringe benefits that Oregon manufacturers might offer to help attract and retain a well-trained (and happy) workforce.

O’Connor concludes: “Too often, when employers consider doing something new or different, they brush it off because “we’ve never done it that way.” Small changes can go a long way in showing your employees that you appreciate their work, that you are invested in their success, and that you want them to stay. In today’s environment, taking steps to encourage employee loyalty can pay dividends in the long run.”
