Filling Skills Gaps and Retaining Top Talent

Many executives in the aerospace industry (and manufacturing in general) consider workforce capabilities very important for their company, and our nation’s, competitiveness. Manufacturing jobs have evolved substantially over the past 15 years, as companies have heavily invested in advanced machinery and capabilities. These machines demand up-to-date technology skill sets. In a global study, conducted by Deloitte found that manufacturing executives worldwide ranked “talent” as the most important driver of country-level manufacturing competitiveness.

However, as many as two million manufacturing jobs in the United States are likely to go unfilled between 2015 and 2025 due to the unavailability of skilled workers, leaving organizations with tough choices; fill the skills gap with training, apprenticeships, and other creative means – or leaving the roles unfilled.
