We keep hearing “I can’t find the right person”. In a recent article at StaffingTalk.com, it is no wonder when a survey by Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute found:
- 5% of current manufacturing jobs unfilled due to lack of qualified candidates
- 67% of manufacturers have a moderate to severe shortage of qualified workers
- 56% expect the shortage to increase in the next three to five years.
“U.S. manufacturing companies have as many as 600,000 jobs that they cannot find workers with the proper skills to fill, according to a survey by Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute.”
