Education Can Be Key to Past and Future Success
The manufacturing hiring environment is tough, but many companies are doing what they can to fight this trend. When Brookings spoke with John Hazen White Jr., owner, chairman and CEO of Taco Comfort Solutions (Taco), he highlighted his long-term approach to employee education and training in partnership with local education institutions. Experts have recommended this as a successful strategy for creating robust talent pipelines.
White describes these partnerships as crucial to Taco’s success. He observes “what a mistake it would be not to play off of that strength” of local educational institutions, explaining the essential role these partners play: “I can’t afford to hire a staff of faculty members, nor can I afford to have my own people off the job teaching.”
