For the past 8 years, Manufacturing Day has celebrated modern manufacturing while seeking to inspire the next generation of employees. Advancements in technology, automation, and robotics continue to transform the manufacturing industry, while presenting both challenges and opportunities. Today, there are more open manufacturing jobs than there are skilled workers to fill them. Over the next decade, an estimated 4.6 million manufacturing jobs will need to be filled in the U.S. With over 7,000 manufacturing employees globally, we are committed to reinvigorating the manufacturing workforce.
Here’s how we’re supporting the next generation of employees:
We’re putting sustainability into action by maintaining and growing our skilled workforce. Our apprenticeship program leverages the expertise of current employees to train the next generation of employees. Benchmarked on the European dual education system, this program is an educational model that combines practice, theory, and on-the-job experience to train a skilled, competitive workforce. Upon graduation, apprentices are fully prepared to meet workplace demands as electrical, maintenance and process technicians.
Recent graduates can shape their careers through the traineeship program offered by our International Packaging business unit. Through this program, participants spend 18-months rotating among various departments and roles, such as product development, quality management, and plant management, while receiving additional customized training. During this time, trainees gain practical knowledge in order to master their job in the long term.
Internships provide students with a great opportunity to gain valuable on-the-job experience while contributing to real-world projects that make an impact in our business. Internships are available with a variety of departments and provide students with the opportunity to create their own networks that they can leverage for decades to come.
The important role manufacturers have in our daily lives has never been more evident. We celebrate manufacturing today, and every day. Our employees have been, and always will be, the key to our success.
