Around the globe, regardless of industry or business model, manufacturers are asking themselves the same question: Who will do the work?Get in Touch
According to a 2021 report by Deloitte, 77% of surveyed manufacturers anticipate there will be ongoing difficulties in attracting and retaining workers in 2021 and beyond. This sums up to potentially 2.1 million manufacturing jobs being/left unfilled in the US alone by 2030.
For manufacturers, the consequences can be severe in the form of reduced competitiveness, longer time-to-market, and loss of vital know-how. From a general business perspective, the lack of qualified workers poses a global problem for the manufacturing industry and has the potential of evolving into a barrier for further growth. Century-old craftsman ships are vanishing Especially in labour-intensive industries reliant on craftsmen and human skills, the threat is imminent.

At the same time, these jobs are often characterised by poor working conditions and repetitive work – leading also to “brain drain” and lack of interest in the trade. Luckily, the solution is right at hand.
