It is well known that one of the manufacturing industry’s biggest challenges is the growing skills gap. Companies continue to have difficulty finding and retaining the right talent — with the right skills — to remain competitive in an increasingly complex, data-driven world. And matters are only going to get worse over the next decade as millions of baby boomers retire and industry needs become more advanced.

This critical topic is being addressed in an upcoming free webinar, sponsored by Kronos in collaboration with IndustryWeek, that will focus on the key trends impacting the widening skills gap, and how best-in-class companies are proactively adapting their labour management strategies to maintain production levels. 

The free webinar will take place on February 25 at 2 pm EST, and will feature three labour management experts weighing in on this topic. The panelists include Brent Weil, senior vice-president for education and workforce at the National Association of Manufacturers; John W. Frehse, a managing partner with Core Practice LLC, workforce management experts; and Dr. Robert C. Lieb, professor of supply chain management at Northeastern University in Boston.

The discussion will cover:

  • How baby boomer retirement and millennial hiring trends are impacting today's widening skills gap; 
  • How leading organizations are adapting their labour management techniques to be more efficient;
  • The importance of developing the talent you have for an unknown future; and
  • Tips on how to stay ahead of the skills gap and prioritize resources to get the most out of your operations.

Register for this free, hour-long webinar here, and find out how you can better build and manage your workforce to meet the needs of today — and tomorrow.
