Manufacturing Recruitment in the Face of Labor Shortages
TA leaders in the manufacturing industry must grapple with a growing labor shortage, further exacerbated by a high turnover rate in the sector. As of March 2023, there were approximately 700,000 open manufacturing jobs in the United States, and on average, manufacturing companies are achieving only 44% of their hiring goals. A GoodTime survey shows that time-to-hire has emerged as the top area of concern for manufacturing TA leaders.
