Elaine Carroll (center), Site Director at JARC-Baltimore, and Regan Brewer Johnson, Executive Vice President of the Jane Addams Resource Corporation, with Jeff Shay, CFO of FR Conversions, attended the SC&H Group-sponsored panel discussion on manufacturing. (Photo courtesy of SC&H Group.) Executives from Baltimore's leading manufacturers urged fellow organizations to adopt more creative talent acquisition and retention approaches during a panel discussion Sept. 20 at the Mount Washington Mill-Dye House, part of a manufacturing focused series created by SC&H Group. The panelists urged business owners to stop using uninventive workforce development strategies, or face the prospect of continued difficulty with recruiting. While many manufacturing organizations have struggled to retain, recruit and expand their workforces, the companies the panelists represented have managed to do just that through programs such as vocational schools, grants, joint ventures, apprenticeships and internal training initiatives. Mark Rice, President of Maritime Applied Physics Corporation, said the gap between workforce development and manufacturing is one of the most important issues faced by manufacturing and its biggest challenge today. He discussed initiatives taken by his organization to create training, educational and mentoring programs at the high school level. http://thedailyrecord.com/2017/10/12/manufacturing-panel-discusses-keys-to-revitalizing-a-struggling-workforce/
