Why are millennials not working in manufacturing?

By 2028, there will be over 2.4 million jobs in manufacturing unfilled because of skill gaps, retiring baby boomers, and growing industries attracting labor elsewhere. Companies need to adapt and integrate Industry 4.0 solutions like digital tools to attract the next generation and workforce.

Join IMEC and The Manufacturing Millennial, Jake Hall, to continue the conversation with about how manufacturing automation can improve the labor shortage, throughput, quality, profitability and value to customers.

Topics covered include:

  • What is flexible automation?
  • How can manufacturers engage with and attract millennials to the industry?
  • How can automation protect the existing workforce?


Jake Hall is the Manufacturing Millennial. He talks about the latest technology in the automation and manufacturing while making it engaging for all audiences. He is an experienced sales professional with extensive knowledge building lasting business relationships across multiple accounts, designing sales strategies, and creating and accomplishing project goals. Proficiency in creating new business opportunities with existing and new accounts by leveraging key strengths and maintain customer relationships.
