The number of young people emerging from school post-16 is projected to fall in the future, UK manufacturers will need to broaden their approach to attract and retain workers from a wider talent pool. With UK manufacturers still employing an overwhelmingly male workforce, seeking more women and also workers from other sectors with transferable skills will be two key ways in which manufacturers will plug the skills gaps they face.
Also, with 80% of the employees who manufacturers will train in the future already in the workforce, businesses will need to upskill their current workforces with new digital and technical skills as new technologies emerge and this will require a holistic view of the workplace – from young entrants, to mid-career employees to older workers.
This workshop will highlight some examples of good practice and success stories with some key practical examples from all levels of the workforce.
