Owners of manufacturing companies know first-hand just how rewarding careers in this sector can be, both financially and intellectually. However, young talent may not realize the benefits a factory can offer. Manufacturing companies are having to find creative ways to breathe new life into their mature companies by enticing young talent to join their workforces.
A key factor in finding the right talent is understanding how manufacturing has changed. Increased automation, robotics, and advanced manufacturing equipment is driving the need for a more skilled workforce equipped with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills. As a result, many manufacturers need to look beyond their traditional sources to fill key manufacturing roles.
