Skills Gap in Manufacturing: from Problem to Opportunity 921
Skills Gap in Manufacturing: from Problem to Opportunity
Approved 0


The US manufacturing sector faces a major challenge posed by rapid changes in technology, an aging workforce, and the shortage of skilled workers. In addition, younger generations of workers, from millennials to gen Z, seek to leverage their day-to-day digital experience also in their workplaces. How can such a challenge be turned into an opportunity?

Although there are a variety of complementary approaches to technical training, there is a growing body of evidence indicating that people enjoy and learn successfully from video. While many companies already understand its value, they struggle with a costly and time-consuming production process. This is where AI can help lower the barriers for content creation and enable a true scalable solution.

Together with Stanley Black and Decker, an early adopter of DeepHow, we will walk you through a digital transformation journey which led to a 25% performance improvement and a 40% reduction in training resources, towards the empowerment of a global workforce well beyond traditional training.
