Social recruiting for manufacturing

Get more qualified manufacturing talent on social media

Social recruiting puts manufacturing companies in front of the top candidates they need for every level of the organization.

The next evolution of social recruiting

You’re facing an industry-wide skills gap and fierce talent competition from all sides

The manufacturing workforce already had its share of challenges prior to the pandemic: an aging workforce, skills shortages, and fierce competition for manufacturing candidates for all levels and locations. Deloitte estimates that 2018-2028 will generate 4.6 million manufacturing job openings but predicts only 2.2 million of those will be filled. The aging workforce population only widens this gap in qualified manufacturing talent—a gap that pushes time-to-fill and cost-per-hire to new levels each year. Despite the global disruption of COVID-19, Bureau of Labor Statistics data showed the gap between open positions and available skilled workers in manufacturing remained even during the pandemic.

Talent attraction and retention in manufacturing has never been more challenging, nor more critical, which is why many turn to social recruiting to reach candidates directly, more frequently, and at scale.
