The Future Manufacturing Workforce: Creating talent strategies guided by insights from Gen Z

The manufacturing industry is facing a talent crisis with the impending “silver tsunami” of baby-boomer retirements. This is compounded by the harsh reality that younger generations aren’t exactly lining up to take their place.

To remain competitive in the war for talent, you must create a work environment that attracts, engages, and retains the future workforce: Gen Z. But what are the practical changes you must make to your corporate culture?

To both understand how HR executives are approaching talent management strategies and uncover what Gen Z is looking for in a workplace, UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group) sponsored the study The Future Manufacturing Workforce: Creating talent strategies guided by insights from Gen Z in partnership with IndustryWeek. The study, which included HR executives from organizations across the industry as well as Gen Zers currently in the manufacturing workforce, sought to identify and draw comparisons between the steps manufacturers are taking and what Gen Z is truly looking for on the job.

Read the survey findings to:

  • Learn what practices HR executives are putting into place to ensure a continuous talent pipeline and to streamline the transfer of knowledge among their multigenerational workforce
  • Gain critical insights into what types of benefits and culture Gen Z employees want in the workplace, as uncovered by the study
  • Understand how leveraging people-centric HR and workforce management technologies can help you create “Gen-Z-ready” work practices
