Renewal in Manufacturing Brings New Challenge of Finding Skilled LaborIt\u2019s a promising time to be a manufacturing company. New tax incentives have accelerated the timeline for companies looking to upgrade their machines. As businesses continue to convert to automation and precision-machining, they face the challenge of finding skilled labor to help with those very same machines.Our own Aneesa Muthana recently\u00a0spoke to the Wall Street Journal, saying \u201cit\u2019s almost impossible\u201d to find skilled workers to help with 12 new Swiss CNC machines coming to Pioneer Service in 2018.The gap between \u201calmost impossible\u201d and \u201ctotally impossible\u201d is small, but significant, and it falls to manufacturing leaders to widen that gap. We can act as ambassadors to the young men and women now considering their choice of career.Fortunately, there are countless ways for leaders to cultivate ambition and curiosity in youth. Pioneer Service\u00a0hosts Manufacturing Days, takes part in\u00a0Science & Entrepreneurship Exchange (SEE) events,\u00a0and Aneesa regularly participates in\u00a0STEM events for college and high school students.Skilled labor is oil in the engine of manufacturing, and only its leaders can create the pipeline of qualified candidates necessary for success beyond 2018.
