Manufacturing Leaders Launch Task Force to Tackle Workforce and Competitiveness Issues

Caterpillar chairman and CEO and National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) board chair Doug Oberhelman announced the formation of a task force of business and manufacturing leaders that will tackle the workforce challenges hampering the continued growth of American manufacturing competitiveness in the global marketplace.

The workforce issues facing manufacturers are no secret to employers, policymakers or the media. Two of the most pressing, which the task force will address, are the mounting skills gap between the preparedness of workers and the capabilities manufacturers need and the scarcity of graduates in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields.

The NAM Task Force on Competitiveness & the Workforce will be led by Chip Blankenship, president and CEO of GE Appliances—a $5 billion unit of GE that has invested $1 billion in its U.S. operations and added more than 3,000 jobs since 2010. He will be joined by 15 NAM Board members representing a diverse group of U.S. companies.
