EMPLOYERS

Filling a growing skills gap

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there will be approximately 3.5 million manufacturing openings over the next decade and national estimates predict the current labor pool will only be able to fill approximately 43% of those openings. Baby boomer retirements and economic expansion have created a broadening shortage of highly technically skilled workers. The manufacturing sector will need to develop a qualified labor pool to fill approximately 2 million positions nationally within the next 10 years.

The Center for Energy Workforce Development estimates that nearly half of the electric power generation, transmission and distribution workforce will be significantly impacted in the coming years due to baby boomer retirements as well. As the demographics change, the energy industry is also challenged with replacing a massive number of experienced workers.

Similarly, the State of New York is facing a deficiency of younger members of the workforce with technical skills and interest in the energy and advanced manufacturing sectors. Within the next 10 years, the demand for energy and manufacturing workers in Western New York is expected to total more than 20,000.

As a result, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo supported the creation of Northland Workforce Training Center which will house two training facilities: The Advanced Manufacturing Training Center and the Utility of the Future & Clean Energy Training Center. Our training facilities will increase the number and quality of local candidates prepared for energy and advanced manufacturing careers.
