SAMPLE TEXT: “Manufacturers responding to the survey planned to use a number of strategies to meet staffing needs (see Figure 3), including increasing compensation (62%). They are also considering some of the more creative strategies, including developing internal training programs (42%) and external training agreements (15%) with industry or educational institutions. Tactics to reduce turnover, selected by less than half of respondents (39%), and more deliberate succession planning (28%) could also decrease the costly need to attract (and train) new talent.”
