National Manufacturing Day and Its Initiatives
There are few initiatives that have impacted the course of manufacturing and production in the United States like the National Manufacturing Day (NMD).
Started in 2012 to give the public a glimpse of modern manufacturing and to inspire the next generation of skilled workers, NMD has grown in scope and popularity with each subsequent iteration.
It is expected that in 2017 more than 600,000 individuals and companies will come together to celebrate the National Manufacturing Day on Friday, October 6th.
What breakthroughs will businesses achieve in terms of how the public views manufacturing and its contributions to the economy? How will the perception of students change and will they embrace S.T.E.M careers in hopes of a strong and stable future career path?
NMD may be officially designated as the first Friday of every October, but it influences the strategic decisions taken by the workers of tomorrow throughout the year and beyond.
The Impact of the Day
Over the last half decade, NMD initiatives have had a profound positive effect. 89% of people believe that they are now more aware of the myriad manufacturing opportunities available in their community. 84% of students are more convinced that manufacturing can provide them with stable, well-paying careers and benefits, and 64% are motivated to pursue them.
Many manufacturing companies industry-wide host “plant tours” in which they open their facility to potential employees offering them a sneak peek into the economy -boosting, exciting work that manufacturing entails. Some also organize workshops to focus on Skill Gap and its remedies. Others join forces with their peers and hold symposiums where breakthroughs in manufacturing are presented to their audience and the world.
So far, this year, 2,000+ events have already been registered and more are being published every day.
