All industries face a tight job market, but manufacturing organizations are more vulnerable than most. From research at MetalMiner, we’ve learned manufacturers are failing to add shifts and meet order delivery dates due to the severe technical labor shortage. 

Moreover, companies have needed to increase pay and partner strategically with local community colleges and other trade programs to identify and cultivate a workforce. With the emphasis in today’s schools on STEM and white-collar professions, manufacturers and nearly all trades have felt the impact of the labor shortage. However, the war for talent isn’t over yet. In this webinar we’ll discuss strategies and tactics organizations may have overlooked, and the impact they can have on the industry. 

MetalMiner’s CEO Lisa Reisman will walk through how companies can (and should) address the talent gap. Matthew Runfola, Executive Director and Founder of the Chicago Industrial Design Center will discuss what he sees as the “skills gap” in creating a workforce suitable for today’s manufacturing environment. We’ll also be joined by Brett Armstrong, Director of Business Development from Avetta, who will discuss how manufacturing organizations can find 100% compliant contractors quickly and easily, mitigating risk, increasing productivity and improving the sales cycle as well.
