2014 Hot Jobs: Manufacturing & Logistics

2014 is shaping up to be a promising year for hiring within the manufacturing sector. As more companies bring manufacturing work back to U.S. shores, the need for highly-skilled labor is “growing faster than supply,” according to an article on ERE. In fact, a recent Institute for Supply Management survey notes that while hiring managers expect to increase staffing by an average of 2.4 percent this year, a persistent concern within the industry is finding skilled workers in which to fill those jobs.


What's Hot: Middle Management, Skilled Labor

“Hiring and industry growth within the automotive and manufacturing space continues to rise,” said Phyllis Finley, Executive Vice President at Randstad US. “According to a recent study by Price Waterhouse Coopers of 60 U.S.-based industrial manufacturing executives, more than 77 percent of respondents cited a need to fill certain skill gaps in their businesses over the next two years, specifically in middle management and skilled labor.”
