Ohio manufacturers are struggling to find employees for both skilled and entry-level positions. Over $2 million manufacturing jobs are projected to go unfilled through 2030 according to the May 2021 study published by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute. It will be mathematically impossible for us to compete in the future without revisiting our definition of the “ideal” employee and actively supporting a more diverse workforce.
This breakout asks attendees to challenge their assumptions behind their definition of an “ideal candidate” and reveals ways manufacturers can tap into often overlooked talent pools to locate new employees to contribute to positive change, advanced thinking, teamwork, and innovation. The session will also address things that may need attention in your organization to make it attractive to these groups. Join us in this session to learn about these capable groups of individuals located in the tristate region.
