The Manufacturing Institute (MI) and the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) works to support and grow the manufacturing industry by training and supporting skilled workers.
MI plans to partner with the Charles Koch Institute to help develop fair chance hiring practices within the manufacturing industry. The manufacturing industry will produce over 4 million jobs over the next decade. The Manufacturing Institute believes that second chance hiring will not only help fill those jobs but also bring much-needed skilled labor into the industry.
The Manufacturing institute stated in a press release, “Second chance hiring gives businesses an opportunity to welcome highly motivated, engaged, productive, and loyal new team members that may otherwise be overlooked. This is not only the right thing to do for our businesses, but it’s also the right thing to strengthen our communities. This partnership enables the MI to educate manufacturers in America on second-chance hiring best practices and help them utilize second chance hiring as a strategy to fill open jobs.”
The Manufacturing Institute will collaborate with Levelset during the spring to help develop tools, a learning series, and an initial pilot project with a member company.
