In a blog post published this week by the SEMI Foundation our CEO Debbie Gustafson discusses workforce development challenges with Scott Balaguer of Edwards Vacuum. Their conversation includes insight into the importance of recruiting new, diverse talent while also retaining the workforce already in place.
"One theme is central to almost every conversation: attracting and retaining the talent that is critical for companies to succeed in this new workforce environment. The competition for talent is heating up. As SEMI reported, 29 new fabs will break ground globally between now and 2022. But who will staff them? With 34,000 current vacancies in the semiconductors industry worldwide, companies large and small are already competing for the same talent pool."
