Study: Manufacturing Skills Gap and Future of Work

Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute have released a fourth generation study on the manufacturing skills gap and the future of work.

The study reveals that the skills gap may leave an estimated 2.4 million positions unfilled between 2018 and 2028, with a potential economic impact of $2.5 trillion. Further, the study shows that the positions relating to digital talent, skilled production, and operational managers may be three times as difficult to fill in the next three years.

The study explores several paths forward in addressing the skills gap and preparing for new needed competencies. 11/28/2018
