With workforce challenges looming, the manufacturing industry faces a crucial need for attracting and retaining talent. According to a Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute (TMI) study, the US manufacturing skills gap could result in 2.1 million unfilled positions by 2030. That’s a potential $1 trillion worth of missing jobs.
Current Staffing Challenges for Manufacturers
Manufacturers agree, according to a TMI study cited in an article from NJBIZ. Survey respondents pointed to talent recruitment and retention as their biggest present-day challenge.
“Nearly 83% of manufacturers mentioned attracting and retaining a quality workforce as their top challenge,” the article says, "while almost 45% of manufacturers said that they had to turn down business opportunities because they did not have enough workers."
