Based on data from 107 U.S. and Canadian electronics manufacturers and extensive secondary research, this report assesses the apparent shortage of qualified labor for electronics manufacturing. The data cover the causes of today’s recruitment challenges, including public perceptions of the industry, dynamics of supply and demand growth, job candidate expectations, and supplier constraints. The current gaps in the labor pool are assessed by region and industry segment, as well as the issues impeding the recruitment of production workers and professionals, the industry’s training needs and its image. An assessment of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in the current environment provides insight into strategies to address the current recruitment and training challenges. Recommendations and resources that can help manufacturers overcome the obstacles, such as sources of training grants and an assessment of recruitment channels, are included in the report. 52 pages. Published February 2015.
