Young workers remained with manufacturers because of training opportunities

-

In a recent survey, more than half of manufacturing employees under age 25 said they stuck with their employers because of training and development (69%) and career opportunities (65%), according to a July 15 study from the Manufacturing Institute’s Center for Manufacturing Research.

Senior leaders are more satisfied with their companies’ development programs than frontline workers; 9 in 10 leaders were satisfied, according to the survey, while only two-thirds of frontline employees said the same.

While development is a key part of employee retention, manufacturers also should equip their frontline managers with the ability to support their workers, the Manufacturing Institute said.
