ManufacturingGPS 2017-18 Labour Market Intelligence at your fingertips: New 2017 ManufacturingGPS LMI results are showing that manufacturers (NAICS code 31-33 and Canada-wide) invest in average $541 per employee and per year in training activities*, representing an increase of 30% compared to 2016. Increasing the skill levels of our manufacturing workforce is clearly one of the biggest challenges facing today’s Canadian manufacturing sector.
With much research highlighting the economic benefits (one being EMC’s Manufacturing Essentials Case Studies) of skills development activities and the skills gap being reported a national issue by manufacturers, ManufacturingGPS LMI is showing that investing in training activities is still a “hard sell” in manufacturing and not necessarily a priority for a large percentage of employers – i.e. approximately 30% of the national audience.
