We Began with Manufacturers
ConxusNEO collaborated with Team NEO in 2015 to support an inquiry led by manufacturers in the metal fabrication industry. That analysis demonstrated manufacturers would face a shortage of skilled workers based on the looming retirement of baby boomers and the low numbers of young people choosing to purse a career in manufacturing. This led quickly to the identification of areas for collective action to address immediate talent needs and strategies to build a talent pipeline, starting in Akron Public Schools.
