April 13th - How we are Preparing for Manufacturing Job Growth in Connecticut

The labor market is expected to grow over the next five years. In fact, the demand for employment in manufacturing technologies are anticipated to grow approximately 2% - 5% through 2018. As the demand increases for a more skilled manufacturing labor force, companies may be faced with the prospect of losing experienced employees. To keep your workforce robust, companies may want to offer specialized training for new hires and keep those trained who are moving up in the ranks.

Here in the Connecticut area demand for manufacturing skilled labor for various industries is extremely high. ASQ Hartford is proud to have Dave Russell, from Manchester Community College, speak to us on the changes ahead and how MCC is preparing graduates to meet the labor demand. MCC has been successful to acquiringexperienced teaching staff and has invested into the facilities to train students to meet the needs of this now demanding industrial skilled labor force. MCC is also proud to offer federal financial support thru the efforts of administration and placement of all graduating students. These are great strides for our industry, which has taken many years to develop, and MCC has earned the respect of our major contractors and their sub- contractors.
