The manufacturing industry is integral to the modern economy, employing huge numbers of people
Investment in skills development is vital to secure the future of the industry.
Manufacturing faces intense competition in recruitment of young talent. With access to skilled workers causing a huge barrier to quality, many manufacturers are turning to internal training and offering professional development opportunities to attract and retain employees.
Technology is hugely impacting the sector, from digitalisation in product development and innovation to artificial intelligence in customer experience and automation on the production line. Manufacturing firms must enable workers to use the latest processes, tools and practices, as well as keeping them up to date with legislation on safe, healthy and respectful working environments.
