This webinar focuses on the skills gap in the Michigan (MI) manufacturing sector, with an emphasis on how producer firms can play a role to address workforce development obstacles by collaborating with institutions and actors in their local supply chains and industrial clusters. It draws on case study research of MI's globally competitive thermoforming capital goods sector to examine the recruitment, training and retention challenges producers currently face, how the increased technological intensity of manufacturing work has had a bearing on skill requirements, and the implications for on-the-job training.
