The Future of Manufacturing Talent

In order to maintain US manufacturing as the most highly skilled and trained workforce, GE and several other transportation companies have looked to returning military veterans to fill the growing demand for workers. The Get Skills to Work Initiative is on track to employing 100,000 veterans by 2015, and recently, it has partnered with the state of Illinois to provide training in skill certification to be used in advanced manufacturing jobs. Russell Stokes, president and CEO of GE, believes veterans are the perfect candidates for such careers, because they bring “leadership, reliability, discipline, and high-tech skills to the workplace.” This is a program where everybody wins, because businesses grow, people learn skills, and everyone gets a cut of the pie. Even better, the program appears poised to continue growing.
