Manufacturing runs on the skills of its workers and there is a growing skill gap in America. According to a report from Deloitte and The National Association of Manufacturers, 4.6 million jobs need to be filled by 2028, and 2.4 million jobs are projected to go unfilled due to a lack of trained workers. And this was before the industry lost 1.4 million jobs during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Yet, the good news is we are already seeing signs of a recovery. As of January, manufacturing has recovered 803,000 of those jobs. The recovering economy will provide new opportunities for you to search for high-quality talent. As you prepare for a hiring surge and a renewed landscape, Jobvite is here to help.
