DEARBORN, Mich. (PRWEB) June 11, 2015
With 75 million millennials (those between the ages of 18 and 34) potentially looking for rewarding careers, and manufacturing facing an estimated skills gap of 600,000 positions, it is essential that manufacturers not only understand this generation, but take the appropriate measures to attract and retain.
John Hindman, manager of Learning Services, Tooling U-SME, will facilitate a discussion on the millennial generation and what developmental approaches are key to their engagement and retention. Toni Neary, education specialist, Tooling U-SME, and Mike Munday, CEO and owner of Arwood Machine Corporation will also join the conversation. Munday will provide his insight into minimizing the skills gap with a millennial workforce through strong learning and development programs.
Tooling U-SME will release a corresponding white paper on June 18.
