Over three-quarters (79%) of organizations in the manufacturing industry that were hiring full-time staff reported difficulty recruiting for specific open jobs, an increase from 68% in 2011. The top reasons given for recruiting difficulty were lack of the right skills among candidates (54%), lack of the right work experience (46%), and the candidates’ pay requirements not matching the hiring organization’s salary or hourly rates (28%).
