In a recent article from the InBusiness Madison:
According to David DeLong … (WMEP) Manufacturing Matters! Conference, many manufacturers face a present and looming threat to their growth because of a shortage of experienced welders, machinists, and other highly skilled laborers. In short, says DeLong, there’s currently a mismatch “between what skills the workforce has and what skills management and companies need.”
Davide DeLong identifies three key factors that are contributing to this problem: 1) The workforce is aging, 2) manufacturing jobs are becoming more complex and sophisticated, and 3) young people are simply avoiding careers in manufacturing.
David’s expertise is helping companies solve performance and staffing problems caused by an aging workforce and skills shortages. If you are interested in having David DeLong as a keynote speaker for your conference, visit our ‘Contact Us’ page here.
