(Dated, but still relevant!)  A 2.1 Million jobs gap in manufacturing is predicted by 2030 (in spite of automation). Key talent pipeline initiatives to help offset these trends are to foster inclusive cultures and create ongoing upskilling programs for the digital future of manufacturing. Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is also an imperative for manufacturers. Organizations cannot have a robust talent strategy without a robust DEI strategy. Another area is the need to reskill the workforce with digital skills, to satisfy the emerging new roles in manufacturing production.
