Recruiting & Retaining Tips #MROA

Recruiting and retaining skilled maintenance professionals, especially in rapidly growing regions like here in Asia, is a conversation topic that frequently comes up because without talented professionals, growth will be restrained. 

Here are MRO Asia today, one session tackled the topic and here are a few examples of what works:

1. Frank Bodenhage, president and CEO of MTU Zhuhai, says the MRO offers employees the opportunity to train overseas at MTU's facilities in Germany and Canada. Personal development is important.
