Frequently asked questions

What are the hardest positions for manufacturers to fill?

Several positions within manufacturing can be challenging to fill due to various factors such as specialized skills, high demand for staff in the industry, and labor market dynamics. Some of the hardest positions to add to your manufacturing workforce include:

  • Skilled Trades Workers: Positions such as machinists, welders, tool and die makers, and CNC operators require specialized technical skills and experience. The shortage of skilled trades workers, coupled with an aging workforce and lack of young talent entering these fields, makes it challenging for manufacturers to fill these positions. Building successful onboarding structures and tracking the progress of skilled tradespeople can increase retention and productivity.
  • Engineers: Manufacturing engineers, process engineers, and industrial engineers play critical roles in optimizing production processes, improving efficiency, and implementing new technologies. However, there is often stiff competition for engineering talent, particularly those with expertise in fields such as automation, robotics, and advanced manufacturing techniques.
  • Technicians: Maintenance technicians, electrical technicians, and automation technicians are essential for ensuring the smooth operation of manufacturing equipment and machinery. Finding qualified technicians with the necessary technical skills and industry experience can be challenging, especially in regions with a limited pool of candidates.
  • Production Supervisors/Managers: Effective leadership is crucial for managing production teams, coordinating workflow, and achieving production targets. However, finding experienced production supervisors or managers who possess strong leadership skills, technical expertise, and industry knowledge can be challenging.
  • Quality Control/Assurance Specialists: Quality control inspectors, quality assurance engineers, and quality managers are responsible for ensuring that products meet quality standards and regulatory requirements. Finding professionals with a keen attention to detail, analytical skills, and knowledge of quality management systems can be difficult.
  • Supply Chain and Logistics Specialists: Procurement managers, supply chain analysts, and logistics coordinators are essential for managing inventory, optimizing supply chains, and ensuring timely delivery of materials and products. However, finding candidates with expertise in supply chain management, inventory optimization, and logistics can be challenging, particularly in rapidly evolving global markets.
  • Data Analysts and IT Specialists: With the increasing digitization and automation of manufacturing processes, there is a growing demand for professionals with expertise in data analysis, cybersecurity, and information technology (IT). However, finding skilled data analysts, cybersecurity specialists, and IT professionals who understand the unique challenges of the manufacturing industry can be challenging.

Addressing these potential staff shortages often requires manufacturers to implement strategies such as investing in workforce development programs, offering competitive salaries and benefits, fair overtime practices, partnering with educational institutions, and leveraging technology to automate repetitive tasks and improve productivity. Additionally, fostering a positive work culture, attendance incentives, providing opportunities for career advancement, and offering ongoing training and development can help attract and retain top talent in the manufacturing sector.
