Talent Pipeline Management: Solving for Machinists, Quality Inspectors, and Engineers

The Metro West Advanced Manufacturing Alliance’s Workforce Action Team has officially launched the Talent Pipeline Management (TPM) survey to address the needs for machinists, quality inspectors, and engineers.

Kratos Industries, TTM Tech, Sundyne, WellMaster, and Barber-Nichols have begun providing details on their projected workforce recruitment needs for the coming year. We believe that data drives decision-making. TPM takes a demand-driven approach to workforce development. By aligning the talent pipeline with the specific needs of employers, the talent system becomes more responsive to market demands, reducing skills gaps and ensuring that individuals are equipped with the right skills for available job opportunities.
