Recruitment, Retention, and Revenue: Bringing Together Manufacturing and a Liberal Arts College
Liberal arts colleges usually do not form partnerships with manufacturing companies. However, one liberal arts college did just that! In this session, Carthage College and LMI Packaging will co-present diverse viewpoints on how to solve the problem of the talent shortage in manufacturing and build a relationship with a local liberal arts college. Learning Objectives: Understand the relationship between liberal arts education and manufacturing opportunities through experiential learning. Define challenges and benefits connecting employers and colleges/universities to talent pipeline recruitment. Determine next steps to approach local employers and college/universities to build partnership.
