In 2020, we were faced with unprecedented times in the wake of the pandemic. Local businesses had to make tough decisions regarding their workforce, with some forced to shut their doors either temporarily or permanently, due to falling demand. Other businesses had to move their operations online because employees were freshly working from home, but a small number of businesses faced completely different obstacles.
The lumber and building materials industries were facing sharp increases in demand but their workforce couldn’t keep up! One local company, in particular, increased its manufacturing capacity by 70%. This resulted in an influx of new hires, which caused them to promote existing, frontline employees to positions of leadership, which raised concerns about employee burnout and job stress.
LFCC Workforce Solutions was uniquely positioned to act quickly to meet the urgent leadership training needs of the client.
