Finding Workers: More Than a Help-Wanted Ad. The manufacturing sector faces a dichotomy where output continues to surge while record numbers of jobs go unfilled. A challenge in attracting workers is getting the word out about the opportunities, advantages, and the prospects for career growth. Modern manufacturing jobs are built on technology, which is something those not associated with manufacturing may not be aware of. To attract — and retain workers — manufacturers are encouraged to invite people in to show them modern manufacturing processes. Reach out to underrepresented communities, military veterans, educators, guidance counselors, parents, and students themselves. Keep in mind the digital savvy nature of the people you are attracting: provide online courses and virtual reality training, as examples, which upskill people faster. Share how automation augments a manufacturing worker's experiences. And, have staff share their rewarding experiences and opportunities for upward mobility.
