Job Skills & Standards

Workers need specific job skills to meet industry standards.

As technology changes and skilled workers retire, employers, especially in manufacturing, struggle to find workers with the skills needed to help them expand their operations and improve productivity.

Upjohn research has investigated skills gaps and recommended reforms to education and job training to help reduce them.
