Report: Workforce Investments Fuel Record Reshoring

Reshoring and foreign direct investments created an estimated 1.6 million-plus U.S. manufacturing jobs between 2010 and the end of 2022, according a recent report. A key factor is America’s focus on upskilling its workforce.

To ensure Ohio has an adequate manufacturing talent pool to capitalize on the reshoring trend, the OMA has published this “Workforce Roadmap” for 2023.

Among other things, the plan establishes a goal to attract 6,000 new or upskilled incumbent employees; accelerate Innovation/Industry 4.0 education and workforce development; and expand and diversify the manufacturing talent pool. 1/30/2023
