The 2012 Manufacturing Industry Survey:
Solving Today’s Labor Shortage
Thank you for participating in the Wisconsin Manufacturing Industry Survey sponsored by Schenck SC and Corporate Report Wisconsin. This brief survey is designed to gather your feedback and experiences finding skilled labor in Wisconsin, and to share effective solutions to this challenge within the manufacturing community.
Many Wisconsin manufacturers are experiencing difficulties in finding sufficient skilled labor, such as welders and machinists. While government and educational institutions are making strides in addressing this challenge in the long term, the manufacturing community is also looking for solutions that can make an immediate impact.
So tell us, how is your organization dealing with the labor shortage? What solutions have (or have not) helped? How should government, educators, and the private sector come together to solve this issue? We encourage your candid responses to these questions.
Thank you to all who participated in the survey. The results have now been posted. Click here to view the report.
