  3. 3. Introduction This report compares the results of three SHRM polls on the impact of the recession on U.S. organizations in the manufacturing industry: The Ongoing Impact of the Recession—Manufacturing Industry  April 2012  Manufacturing industry only The Ongoing Impact of the Recession  August 2011  Eight industries: manufacturing; construction, mining, oil and gas; federal government; finance; health; state and local government; services—professional; high-tech 2010 Post-Recession Hiring  January 2010  Eight industries: manufacturing; construction, mining, oil and gas; federal government; finance; health; state and local government; services—professional; high-tech SHRM Poll: The Ongoing Impact of the Recession 2012 Update—Manufacturing Industry ©SHRM 2012 3
  4. 4. Key Findings: Organizations’ Financial HealthManufacturing Industry What percentage of staff have organizations laid off since the U.S. and global recession began in December 2007? Overall, nearly three-quarters (72%) of respondents from the manufacturing industry indicated they had lost 10% of employees or less in 2012, a slight increase from 66% in 2011. In 2010, fewer than one-half (43%) of these organizations had reported losing less than 10% of employees. How does organizations’ financial health compare to 12 months ago? In 2012, almost three-quarters (73%) of organizations in the manufacturing industry reported mild to significant improvement in organizational financial health compared with a year ago. This is an increase from 59% in both 2011 and 2010. The percentage of manufacturing organizations that were in a significant recovery increased from 6% in 2010 to 19% in 2011.

  5. 5. Key Findings: HiringManufacturing Industry Are organizations currently hiring? The majority (75%) of respondents from the manufacturing industry are currently hiring. This number has not changed over the past seven months (from August 2011 to April 2012), but has increased from 51% in 2010. Are organizations creating new positions or replacing jobs lost? In 2012 and 2011, more than one-half of organizations (52% and 54%, respectively) in the manufacturing industry were hiring direct replacements of jobs lost since the recession began, an increase compared with 2010 (42%). Fewer organizations were hiring for completely new positions in 2012 (36%) and 2011 (32%) than in 2010 (48%).

  6. 6. Key Findings: Recruiting ChallengesManufacturing Industry Is recruiting for specific jobs difficult in the current labor market? Among organizations that are currently hiring full-time staff, more than two-thirds (67%) of respondents from the manufacturing industry indicated that their organizations are having a difficult time recruiting for specific open jobs. When recruiting for jobs that require new and different skill sets, more organizations in the manufacturing industry have found it difficult to find qualified individuals for these positions in 2012 (74%) and 2011 (72%) compared with 2010 (43%). What types of jobs are the most difficult to fill? The top five most difficult positions to fill for the manufacturing industry are high-skilled technical positions (e.g., technicians and programmers) (91%), scientists (89%), engineers (87%), managers and executives (83%), and skilled trades (e.g., electricians, carpenters) (79%).
