“The skills required for today’s workforce are at an all-time high. Additionally, the shortage of skilled labor for the manufacturing sector is a regional concern for the North Shore. The Northeast Advanced Manufacturing Consortium has helped Bostik address this shortage by expanding its reach with recruiting efforts and training opportunities. The Consortium’s Apprenticeship Program has provided financial assistance enabling us to increase the skills of our workers more quickly than traditional methods with limited interruptions. The partnership has yielded tremendous benefits for our business. Although the program has been great for Bostik, the real economic benefit to the North Shore would be for all manufacturers to partner with the Northeast Advanced Manufacturing Consortium to help keep manufacturing jobs alive and well in Boston’s North Shore.”
