The world’s top economies are being depressed due to skills shortages within science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. At an organizational level, this is holding businesses back, reducing profit margins and diminishing success. The manufacturing and engineering sectors are especially impacted by these skills shortages, with 85% of UK managers in the sector struggling to find suitable candidates. In the US, a study by Deloitte estimates there will be 2.4 million manufacturing positions left unfilled between 2018 and 2028. When businesses are understaffed and slower to innovate, they are slower to adopt new technologies, harness automation and benefit from advances in manufacturing processes.
