Patrick O’Rahilly, CEO and Founder of FactoryFix, a recruiting platform that connects manufacturers to vetted, skilled workers, recently discussed Generation Z and the important role they play in the future of manufacturing. Read the feature in Forbes here.
According to O’Rahilly, “Generation Z consists of people born after 1996, and they are poised to be the workforce of the next 30 years. Our industry needs to invite these Gen Z workers into manufacturing, but they will only hear us if we speak to them in a language they understand. With the right mix of job roles, pay ranges and cultural fit, this generation is ready to do the work — and invite their peer network to solve the manufacturing labor shortage.”
The longer-term prognosis for Gen Zers in manufacturing and logistics can be a positive one, but only once employers engage with them where they are, play the streaming game and build rapport.
O’Rahilly is a proud member of the Forbes Business Council, An invitation-only organization for senior-level sales and business development executives. Members are respected leaders and executives who are selected for the council based on the depth and diversity of experience in the business development space.
FactoryFix’s purpose is two-fold: 1) to help companies with hiring by providing access to a unique talent pool, vetting applicants, providing salary insights, generating job listings, and other tools to streamline the process. 2) It also allows job seekers to create profiles to easily find employers that fit their skill-sets, thus maximizing their earning potential.
Patrick O’Rahilly, Founder of FactoryFix, explains, “The result is a tremendous time and costs savings when compared to hiring through a traditional staffing agency or job board. Both have their advantages, but staffing firms are expensive, and job boards require a lot of time and effort to sift through unqualified candidates. The FactoryFix platform takes the best of each and combines it into a turn-key hiring solution made exclusively for this industry.”
Companies that engage in an annual subscription are guaranteed qualified workers for their open positions. Some of the most popular jobs on FactoryFix include operator, maintenance, welding, machining, and automation roles.
