After shedding jobs at a rapid pace between 1998-2010, the fortunes of America’s manufacturing workers have improved in recent years. This does not mean though that the pace of industry change has slowed.

Join experts from both The Conference Board and McKinsey to learn how:

  • A digitizing economy incentivizes production closer to the point of sale;
  • Automation raises skill requirements for manufacturing workers; and
  • The transformation of manufacturing will play out differently at both state and subsector levels. 

This interactive program will help you identify the types of jobs and talents HR professionals will have the most difficulty hiring for as the workforce ages.

Who Should Attend: HR professionals and other executives in manufacturing, retail and any sector that relies on manufactured products for their business.
