It’s no secret that it’s becoming more difficult to attract and retain key talent for technical, electrical and mechanical roles. In fact, it’s estimated that there’s already a national shortage of more than 60,000 technicians today. This video explores how companies, their equipment and solutions providers, educational institutions and others can harness practical action and technology to find and keep the technical talent they need. We feature a facilitated session that put the audience in direct discussions with the academic community, technology and innovation leaders, and equipment manufacturers to help develop practical solutions which can be implemented today.
