Looking for staff? Join Gavin Dunwoodie for our upcoming webinar

Manufacturing News

Like many manufacturing leaders, PFi group CEO Gavin Dunwoodie (pictured) is short of staff and is investing in ways to utilise existing staff better as well as in recruiting, training and retaining new ones.

But so bad was the situation in 2022 he took to advertising on a billboard (pictured, below) along with fellow Queensland company Gilmour Space Technologies.

Dunwoodie told @AuManufacturing: “We pay thousands of dollars to be noticed, not for our next client but to find our next candidates, and we need lots of them.

“We are recruiting a minimum of five new employees each week not to mention the dollars we are pumping into our suppliers.”

Dunwoodie and fellow manufacturing leaders will explore options for investing in new technologies to ease the worker shortage, as well as ways to recruit and retain staff in an online webinar to be held on Tuesday, 29 August at 11am eastern time.

Dunwoodie said his company needed staff, ‘and I need a lot of them’.

“We are still 15 percent below the staff numbers we need to fulfill our opportunities and service our back orders.”

Joining Dunwoodie will be Greg O’Loan, the Regional Vice President of Epicor in Australia and New Zealand, Richard Simpson, Managing Director at Furnace Engineering and Patrick Ferron, Financial Controller at Great Western Manufacturing.
