Workforce

The lack of skilled workers remains a challenge that is limiting growth. Attracting capable personnel, balancing their benefits and costs, and training younger employees as older workers retire are among the continuing workforce challenges manufacturers are facing. As a consequence, many firms are collaborating with local colleges, trade schools and high schools on training programs to nurture a workforce that can provide the skills they need for future growth.
