2014 Survey of Connecticut Manufacturing Workforce Needs


CBIA, working in partnership with the Connecticut Community Colleges College of Technology’s Regional Center for Next Generation Manufacturing and UIL Holdings Corporation, surveyed the state’s manufacturers about their hiring expectations and workforce challenges. The findings highlight expected growth in the state’s manufacturing sector, a considerable number of projected full-time hires over the next few years, and the need for a pipeline of well-qualified workers to meet that demand. Statistics covering strategies for filling vacancies, specific jobs in demand, required core competencies and existing skills deficiencies, educational attainment levels and the importance of credentials are included in the 2014 report.
