The most recent MHI industry report lists the top manufacturing challenges as solving the skills shortage while also meeting customer expectations. And it is currently predicted that by the year 2025, more than three million manufacturing jobs will remain unfilled, which is exacerbated by the fact that customers more and more want their products delivered faster and for less. Now, manufacturers are forced to find a way to produce at increasingly higher quality without adequate resources.Topics covered in this session include:

  • Analyzing data analytics to identify the best recruitment areas
  • Considering skillset rather then just education alone when reviewing resumes
  • Leveraging the talents of the existing workforce through training programs
