Although the manufacturing industry has been grappling with labour shortages for years, the challenge has been accelerated by events such as the Covid pandemic, Brexit, geopolitical disruptions and an ageing workforce.
According to PWC’s Annual Manufacturing Report 2020, British Manufacturers are facing the largest shortfall of skilled workers since 1989. Furthermore, a survey by Deloitte/Manufacturing Institute, projects that 2.69 million more manufacturing workers will retire by 2030.
The labour challenge, coupled with on-going supply chain disruptions has resulted in procurement, safety and supply chain leaders adapting a reactive, rather than a proactive, strategic approach to contractor sourcing and risk management.
To minimise project delays, health and safety risks and reputational damage, manufacturers must adopt a robust approach to contractor management and build partnerships with safe, credible and compliant contractors.
