TalenTrust Supports Manufacturing Execs

Workshops and webinars focus on people as a competitive advantage and how manufacturing companies can find, keep, and grow great people

Here are some staggering statistics related to the talent shortage in manufacturing:

  • Over the next decade, nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will likely be needed, and 2 million are expected to go unfilled due to the skills gap.
  • 80% of manufacturers report a moderate or serious shortage of qualified applicants for skilled and highly-skilled production positions.
  • Across all industries, 76% of workers are open to or actively seeking new opportunities. That’s 3 in 4 workers!
  • In a study of 20,000 new hires across all industries, nearly 50% failed within 18 months. This turnover really impacts the bottom line.
  • Manufacturing companies spend, on average, 25-30% of gross revenues on employee salaries and benefits. They must focus on people as an asset – a competitive advantage

“We got exactly what we wanted. We received a step-by-step analysis of our processes that outlined what we were doing, and explained how it could be improved. It was based on trusted best practices and credible sources. Ultimately, the work of TalenTrust went well beyond just analysis. It was solution-oriented, with realistic and appropriate recommendations.”
