What Are The Best Practices for Recruiting and Retaining Skilled Production Workers?

Other Titles

Abstract

[Excerpt] While the demand for production workers increases, negative public perceptions of manufacturing persist from “[y]ears of offshoring and reports of deteriorating conditions, along with some seriously irresponsible PR, has left the new generation of workers disenfranchised with the whole industry and less inclined than ever to join”. This is troubling as the need for these high-skilled workers are in increasing demand in all industries. In addition to being able to complete a more diverse set of tasks on the job, “[h]igh-skilled workers are more productive than low-skilled workers in the performance of all tasks and their relative productivity increases with the complexity of tasks”. There are many factors shifting the desire for highly skilled production workers, such as the globalized war for talent and scarcity of specific skill sets.
