The hot job market in supply chain has created a new set of challenges for employers. One trend we’re seeing is that many companies are caught in a cycle of hiring and training new employees, only to have them leave for a better paying opportunity.

Each time an employee leaves, the company must invest time and resources into training their replacement. This can be costly and time-consuming, especially if the employee was in a specialized role or had developed valuable skills during their time with the company.

To avoid the training treadmill, employers need to find ways to keep employees engaged and motivated.

One way to do this is to regularly communicate with employees and understand their needs and goals. This can help identify potential issues or areas for improvement that may be contributing to employee job switching.

Another factor to consider is providing opportunities for growth. This can include offering training and development programs, allowing employees to take on new challenges and responsibilities, and offering pathways to advancement.

Are you an employer dealing with this issue? What solutions have you found? Let me know in the comments.
