Global trade and manufacturing are expanding rapidly, and that means that our workforces have to evolve to keep pace with demand, technology, and trends that are driving the world’s economy. But many U.S. manufacturers are facing difficulties making that transition, including the creation of a clear strategy for managing a global workforce. Research gathered from a recent global survey reveals distinct trends and strategies that U.S. manufacturers should consider when expanding to other countries.
The results of the survey, along with practical advice from industry experts, are compiled in this paper and designed to provide insight into global trade, investment, and workforce trends and best practices — as well as supply recommendations on workforce strategies that manufacturers can employ to improve their global competitiveness.
