Attracting Talent and Retaining Employees

As technology plays an increasing role in advanced manufacturing processes and as experienced workers eligible for retirement begin to leave the workforce, the manufacturing skills gap continues to grow in our region.  Manufacturing companies that implement best practices for talent attraction and retention have a competitive advantage in a marketplace that rewards efficiency, nimbleness and rapid turnaround times.
