NPCA Onboarding Program Aids Training and Retention

Whether training a new worker or offering development opportunities to current staff members, NPCA’s new Onboarding Program fits your needs. Introduce newly hired employees to your organization’s expectations, behaviors and culture all while building loyalty and trust. The NPCA Onboarding Program contains guidance and resources to get new hires to 100% productivity sooner while addressing their specific motivations and skills.

Through an annual subscription, your plant receives a resource manual and facility-wide access to a video library to get new workers comfortable and up to speed quickly. Videos range from “What is Precast?” and “Day in the Life of a Precaster” to learning about topics including safety, quality and specific plant roles such as rebar assembly, form release application, product inspection and storage.

You choose which videos are relevant to each employee. These videos can even help veteran workers who may be changing roles or training on new tasks.

The NPCA Onboarding Program is the perfect supplement to any orientation process, filling in the gaps and giving workers some knowledge and experience before going out on the plant floor, yard or wherever their job takes them.
