Manufacturing industry

Employee benefit programs tailored specifically to your manufacturing industry needs.
Manufacturing success

With over 250 manufacturing clients in the US, we understand the issues employers are facing in the industry.

In the coming decade, 2.6 million baby boomers will retire from manufacturing jobs. This leaves open positions in a work environment where skill requirements are increasing.

There is a large gender gap among the manufacturing employee population. Only 29% of women fill manufacturing jobs – creating an environment with DE&I concerns.

A lack of geographic diversity in the supply chain, environmental concerns and global supply chain interruptions are putting new pressures on manufacturers who need resources and goods for production.
