Why Are Area Employees Quitting Their Manufacturing Jobs?

By Jeremy Cook – September 5, 2018

88% of manufacturers who completed our 2017 EmployerOne Survey indicated that they had separations - 72% of these were quits (see chart below). Our 2018 EmployerOne Survey shows that 75% of manufacturers also had positions that were hard to fill sighting not enough applicants, lack of motivation, lack of qualifications, lack of work experience and lack of technical skills as the top 5 reasons for these hiring difficulties. This survey also showed that 83% of employers rated the availability of skilled workers as fair to poor (compared to 17% rated at good to excellent).
