Manufacturers to spend $26.2 billion on 'upskilling' in 2020 to attract and keep workers

A worker fits wheel hub badges on the Ford Focus automobile assembly line inside the Ford Motor Co. factory in Saarlouis, Germany, on Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019. Ford expects hybrid electric vehicles and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) to make up over 50% of its European passenger vehicle sales by year-end 2022.

With a skills gap plaguing manufacturing in a historically tight labor market, companies are spending big to “upskill” their current workforce and ensure a pipeline of talent.

Manufacturers are set to spend $26.2 billion on internal and external training initiatives for new and existing employees in 2020 to combat the shortage of available workers, according to the Manufacturing Institute.

Nearly 70% of manufacturers said they are creating or expanding training programs for their workforce. Three-quarters of respondents said upskilling workers helped to improve productivity, promotion opportunities and morale.

“In manufacturing, you are constantly learning and growing, and the technological change is enormous,” said Carolyn Lee, the institute’s executive director. “What you are going to be able to continue to do as you layer new skills, on top of those fundamental skills, will make for a very interesting and dynamic career.”

The skills gap has been the No. 1 challenge for manufacturers for the past nine quarters, according to the National Association of Manufacturers’ Outlook Survey, which found the inability to attract and retain workers has been a top concern.

In the third quarter, nearly 80% of respondents said they are struggling to fill open positions. The lack of available workers has even forced one-third of companies to turn down business opportunities.

Protolabs, a rapid prototyping manufacturer based in Maple Plain, Minnesota, is looking to add about 70 workers to its workforce of 2,800.

“We are a growth company, and employees are critical to everything that we do. We want to be sure we can keep talent with us,” said Robert Bodor, vice president and general manager for the Americas.

While the company has been fortunate in retaining its workers, Bodor said the goal is to maintain a “good culture of continuous improvement.” So Protolabs is investing in training its existing workforce, as well as new hires. To attract workers in this job market, Protolabs is offering new and flexible models with part-time labor, in addition to offering training and benefits such as a 401(k) plan with an employer match, employee stock-participation plans, and more.

“We do both upskill and bring in new people all the time — we are continually hiring so we have to train and onboard new employees — but we are reinvesting in our employees to create career paths and opportunities for personal growth,” Bodor said. “Our employees are critical to our success, so we want to be creating longevity with them.”

Securing the pipeline of future talent is a key to success for manufacturers. Data from Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute found that some 4.6 million workers will be needed in the sector by 2028, but that 2.4 million of those jobs could go unfilled if steps aren’t taken to ensure proper training. Lee calls recruitment a “full-court press.” The goal of the organization is to close the skills gap by 25% by 2025.

“We just need more people — period,” Lee said. “We have about 480,000 open jobs, and have been hovering around 500,000 openings in the past year after retirements and economic growth. We need to attract transitioning service members and veterans into the sector, and we need to bring the next generation of the workforce into the sector.”

Part of the recruitment efforts beyond training is showing potential hires the changes the sector has gone through — it’s not the manufacturing job of years past. Instead, its high-tech, clean, and can be lucrative for those who move up the ranks. Manufacturing Day, which was held in October, is part of that effort, where manufacturers across the country open their doors to students so they can see for themselves what a career in the sector is all about.

“You should know entering manufacturing that your employer is going invest in you, because you are their greatest resource,” Lee said.

To attract younger employees, this company lets staff take ‘hangover days’

But a digital marketing agency in the North West of England has taken a more flexible approach by letting staff work from home if they’re feeling a little fragile. In fact, the Audit Lab, based in Bolton, Lancashire, has a year-round “hangover day” policy, as first reported by the BBC. Crompton said she and Frame wanted to create a company with a variety of perks for different employees but realized many benefits lent themselves particularly to working parents.

To attract younger employees, this company lets staff take 'hangover days'

As the holiday season gets into full swing with Christmas parties, getting up for work the next day can be harder than usual, especially if you’ve had one-too-many festive drinks.

But a digital marketing agency in the North West of England has taken a more flexible approach by letting staff work from home if they’re feeling a little fragile.

In fact, the Audit Lab, based in Bolton, Lancashire, has a year-round “hangover day” policy, as first reported by the BBC.

Director Claire Crompton said she introduced the policy upon launching the agency three years ago with co-founder Lee Frame, with the aim of attracting younger employees.

Crompton said she and Frame wanted to create a company with a variety of perks for different employees but realized many benefits lent themselves particularly to working parents.

By implementing “hangover days” in addition to a more general policy on flexible working, she felt this was a more inclusive benefit for all staff.

“It’s promoting a trusting environment,” Crompton told CNBC, explaining that it worked on the condition that staff didn’t use it excessively, that they had their laptop at home to work remotely and didn’t cancel meetings.

Allowing for this kind of flexibility was particularly important in the world of marketing, she said, where meeting up with clients after work was the norm.

Crompton said she understood the demands of networking out-of-hours and having to get into work early the next day after having been out late the night before, as she had done in previous roles.

Ellie Entwistle, a 19-year-old PR manager at the agency, believed this perk actually allowed staff to better look after clients when entertaining them out-of-hours, as they didn’t feel the pressure to leave early to get up for work the next day.

“As a young person as well, a lot my friends are still at university, they might work shifts where they can’t go out on Saturday or Sunday, so maybe I want to have a few drinks with them on a Thursday,” she said.

“I’m still obviously working (the next day) but it’s just being able to say ‘honestly I was hungover’,” Entwistle added.

Companies shouldn't keep 'honeypots of data' that attract bad actors, says executive at Google search rival

Sundar Pichai, chief executive officer of Google LLC, arrives to the White House for a meeting in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018.

It’s no longer enough just to protect against hacks and data breaches. Companies also have a responsibility not to attract bad actors to their services, according to Megan Gray, general counsel and policy advocate at DuckDuckGo, a search engine alternative to Google.

“It’s incumbent on the companies to not create these honeypots of data,” Gray said on a panel about tech regulation at a CNBC Technology Executive Council event on Tuesday.

DuckDuckGo is best known for its privacy-focused search engine, which relies on contextual ads, rather than behavioral ads that track users’ actions to target their preferences. Gray said the company advocates for “do not track” legislation, that would require companies to respect users’ decisions not to be tracked. Such regulation would actually boost innovation around contextual advertising, rather than stifling it, she said.

Advertisers may already be preparing for this version of the future. After Google announced earlier this year that it would introduce new privacy features and tracking information on its Chrome browser, advertisers were forced to reevaluate how to reach their audiences under the new changes.

Chris Kelly, a former chief privacy officer at Facebook, disagreed that companies must avoid data “honeypots” altogether.

“In today’s day and age you can’t avoid creating honeypots of data,” he said, arguing consumers like when they are served relevant information based on their preferences, though it’s important to protect that data.

Alan Davidson, VP of global policy at Firefox owner Mozilla, agreed with Gray that there’s no need for companies to store the vast amounts of data once believed to be valuable.

“I think there was an article of faith maybe ten years ago that all data should be kept because it will ultimately someday be valuable,” Davidson said. “And hopefully we are now questioning that and recognizing there’s a cost to keeping data. There’s a privacy issue but there’s a huge security issue and a lot of companies are not equipped to keep the data that they’re keeping.”

China to scrap foreign investment quotas to attract more money into its stock, bond markets

Investors watch the electronic board at a stock exchange hall on February 11, 2019 in Chengdu, Sichuan Province of China.

China’s foreign exchange regulator said on Tuesday that it had decided to scrap quota restrictions on two major inbound investment schemes, as a weakening yuan and rising outflows prompt Beijing to seek to attract more foreign capital.

While underlining China’s thirst for overseas funding as its economy slows amid a debilitating trade war with the United States, the move also appears largely symbolic, as two-thirds of the existing quotas remain unused.

China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) would remove quotas on the dollar-dominated qualified foreign institutional investor (QFII) scheme and its yuan-denominated sibling, RQFII, it said in a statement on its website.

It said the move would “make it much more convenient for overseas investors to participate in China’s domestic financial markets, making China’s bond and stock markets more broadly accepted by international markets.”

The removal of quotas comes amid an escalating Sino-U.S. trade war that threatens growth in the world’s second-biggest economy.

Beijing hopes that foreign capital inflows could help to offset rising outflows and lend support to its yuan, which has dropped to its lowest levels against the U.S. dollar since the onset of the global financial crisis in 2008.

Inflows could also help bolster China’s balance of payments, as some analysts fear the country is slipping dangerously towards twin deficits in its fiscal and current accounts.

The removal “is a clear signal that policymakers want to encourage capital inflows,” wrote Win Thin, Global Head of Currency Strategy at Brown Brothers Harriman.

“The corollary is that they are still very worried about capital outflows and so will make sure to avoid any steps that might increase them,” he said.

China in January doubled the QFII quota to $300 billion, but only $111.4 billion of the limit had been used by foreign investors by the end of August.

China’s securities regulator also published draft rules earlier this year that would combine the QFII and RQFII programmes while also simplifying access for overseas investors.

Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo and Seoul have emerged as Asia Pacific’s most popular travel destinations, according to a new study.

Those five travel hotspots attracted over one-fifth (22%) of all overnight visitors to the region last year, Mastercard’s annual Asia Pacific Destinations Index found Wednesday. They also received the region’s greatest travel spending, bringing in over a quarter (25.2%) of all travel expenditure among the 161 cities studied.

The region’s top four travel destinations in 2018 remained unchanged from the previous year. For the ninth year running, Bangkok (1) and Singapore (2) retained their strongholds, welcoming 22.8 million and 14.7 million overnight international arrivals respectively.

Kuala Lumpur (3), the region’s front-runner in 2009, edged in on Singapore with 13.8 million travelers, but retained third place. Meanwhile Tokyo remained the fourth most popular city, attracting 12.9 million guests.

South Korea’s capital Seoul was the only new entrant to the top five destinations in 2018, having been overtaken by the Thai island of Phuket the previous year.

AI software business ExaWizards is leading that charge, according to a new report from LinkedIn, which names it as Japan’s top start-up to work for in 2019.

The three-year-old company is followed in the ranks by other homegrown successes including cryptocurrency trading platform bitFlyer and news aggregation platform SmartNews.

To be considered for this year’s list, companies had to be privately-held, be seven years or younger, and have 50 or more employees. They were ranked based on LinkedIn user feedback across four pillars: Employment growth; engagement with employees; job interest; and ability to attract top talent from leading employers.

CNBC Make It takes a look at the list of 10 most attractive start-ups in Japan right now.

Opposites attract: Even Steve Bannon and Tom Friedman agree Trump is right to attack on China trade

Ex-Trump advisor Steve Bannon and New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, who might seem like ideological opposites, agree on at least one issue: China trade.

Bannon, whom diehard Democrats view as the antichrist, and Friedman, who works at what President Donald Trump calls “the failing New York Times,” both feel the president is right to go after Beijing.

While it may seem surprising, the two have agreed on Trump’s China policy for some time.

Friedman, while critical of Trump on many issues, wrote about a year ago that the economic fight with China is “worth having,” adding the president’s “instinct is basically right” to hold the line “before China gets too big.” The country is so polarized politically that the mere mention of Bannon and Friedman being on the same page on anything becomes a watershed event.

“I really agree with so much of what Steve said,” said Friedman, who was guest-hosting CNBC’s “Squawk Box” during the Bannon interview Wednesday morning. “The stakes of this moment, I think, people don’t fully appreciate,” referring to the economic clash of the world’s two biggest superpowers.

This cafe-owner designed her restaurant to attract Instagram users — and it's working

Cafe-owner Maree Suteja, who is in her 50’s, may well be spending as much time on Instagram as her two social-media obsessed children who are in their 20’s.

For Suteja, Instagram — the Faceboook-owned social media app — is really about the bottom line.

The former school teacher moved from Australia to Bali, Indonesia where she opened Crate Cafe — known as an “Instagrammers paradise” to tourists, expats and locals.

Suteja designed Crate to attract social media users. The bistro has a minimalist, warehouse-inspired ambiance with bright, natural sunlight streaming into the restaurant. There are displays of unique artwork all around and its dishes are presented in a picture-perfect form.

“Anyone can do a bacon and eggs,” she said. “But how do you make it so that any photo you look at, you know it’s a Crate bacon and egg?”

She attributes the majority of her business to customers discovering her restaurant on Instagram.

The restaurant’s Instagram account has amassed more than 47,000 followers and features a combination of food and people posing before they tuck into their meals.

“Instagram goes hand-in-hand with word-of-mouth,” she said. “You see something on Instagram, you’re going to send it someone or tag a friend. It’s that thing about tagging people and that gets the word out.”
