Ep. 7: The Bus Stops Here: Employers Try Solving Turnover

Episode Summary

A missed phone bill, a late bus, or even a not-quite-completed degree can derail employment for many. Meanwhile, employers suffer the cost of poor retention and few promotions within their entry-level workers. In this episode, we learn about the Employer Resource Network, ERN, which brings businesses together to solve sticky employment issues in their region. We talk to Trinity Health about their apprenticeships and skills-based hiring. Both have increased the health system’s retention and diversity. Finally, follow us as we try to take Metro Detroit buses to work.
