The labor shortage in the manufacturing sector has been well documented. As of October 2021, the number of workers in the industry had declined by almost 400,000 from pre-pandemic levels. According to the National Association of Manufacturers, nearly 2.1 million manufacturing jobs could be open by 2030.
Will this worker shortage adversely affect your manufacturing company, or has it already done so? You don't have to sit idly by while the labor gap continues to grow. One way to entice more workers is by offering an impressive slate of employee benefits. Doing so can help you attract and retain top talent.
