Technological advancements are soon expected to replace many manufacturing workers. While manual labor is still needed in modern manufacturing facilities, the nature and volume of that labor are expected to change. There’s presently an immediate need for skilled workers who can solve complex problems, develop creative ideas, and utilize innovative technical solutions.

This means manufacturing organizations need to look beyond conventional skills to adapt their workforce to changing requirements. Failure to transform your team is likely to lead to decreased productivity and the inability to meet customer demands. The good news is that by retraining your workforce and equipping them with a new set of skills, you’ll help your company, as well as your employees, navigate this changing landscape.

Here are three ways you can address workforce management challenges facing the manufacturing industry:

1. Identify Skills Gaps in Your Business

Although there are many jobs in manufacturing, the disconnect between technology and education has led to a growing gap in skills. What’s more, workplace training has been unable to keep pace with changing technology. You may need to upgrade skillsets, especially concerning problem-solving, communication, and organizational skills.

2. Help Employees Keep Pace with New Technology

The rapid evolution of technology, combined with increasingly automated tasks, has led to the demand for an entirely different set of skills compared to 10 years ago. To counter this, you may want to implement in-house training and rethink your hiring strategy. For example, it’s a good idea to hire technically skilled people, whereas standard manufacturing skills can always be learned on the job.

3. Provide Tools and Training for New Skills

Exposing your workers to new technology and offering apprenticeship training programs can help them adapt to – and embrace – changing demands. Providing training in a virtual environment or with the help of artificial intelligence (AI) allows them to practice tasks at their own pace and close the skill gap.

Closing the Skills Gap in Manufacturing Requires Innovative Thinking

While technological advancements may eliminate many traditional manufacturing job roles, they will also lead to the creation of many new ones. The key to adapting your workforce lies in equipping middle-level workers with new skills to navigate the transition.

Demand-driven training and in-house mentoring can help provide the missing link between workers, new skills, and changing requirements. With the right planning and strategies, you can re-skill and retrain your workforce, and help your employees grow into new, rewarding roles.
