Across the country, the manufacturing sector is having even greater difficulty securing skilled workers amid an ageing work force, as younger generations have shown a lack of interest in the trade.
The British Chambers of Commerce found that over 80% struggled in the final months of 2018 to find staff with the appropriate qualifications. Ensure the success of your future workforce during the skills shortage with these tips:
Highlight Career Opportunities - Discuss professional growth in the application process.
Talk about technology – It is important to showcase the innovative technology given that younger generations are growing up in a digital world.
Offer apprenticeships – A popular way to attract young workers is to invest in schemes that allow employees to gain experience and develop their skills.
