Walters: Solves the Skills Gap Issue

                It isn’t news that the number of tradesmen has decreased within the past few years, and will continue to decrease in the future. Employers are having a difficult time trying to find qualified laborers that possess the right skills. This is causing a shortage of workers and a lack of qualifications that can impact the future of your business.

                This skills gap is caused by multiple factors. One being that the Baby Boomer generation is starting to retire, and those are the workers who poses the top skills for these tradesmen jobs. This gap is also caused by the younger generations being more focused on obtaining a four-year degree and finding a career in the business and technology industries. Meaning that less people are attending vocational schools and seeking jobs in the manual labor careers. There simply are not enough workers ready to take on these construction jobs.

                 With construction predicted to grow in the coming years, Walters is here to help. To solve that issue of workers who do not possess the top skills, Walters is proud to introduce our Greenlee AutoBend 3D.
