How to increase the number of women in manufacturing in 2018

A skilled workforce is the fuel for the manufacturing industry’s engine of growth. As per a report by Deloitte, approximately 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will likely need to be filled in the U.S. from 2015 to 2025. It further forecasts that the skills gap will leave 2 million of these jobs unfilled. And without sufficient availability of a skilled workforce, manufacturers could face inefficient production lines and competitors snatching their business, making hiring and retaining talent equally critical to company success.
