In the Graphic Communication Advisors Group (GCAG) November 2022 article, educator and industry advisor, Dr. Peter Schlosser, addresses future employees for the printing industry, and asks: “Where are our people?”
Schlosser makes the point that the printing industry is not immune from worldwide employee shortages and suggests: “We now must turn our attention to expanding the candidate pool and their qualifications to include a sustainable balance for the future workforce and their leadership.” Schlosser points out that while automation is plays a role in needing fewer employees, it does not replace the need for “creative workers, strong passionate leaders, empathetic supervisors, cutting edge marketing people, and a talented sales force,” so important for company success today and in the future.
Harvey Levenson, Cal Poly Professor Emeritus and Coordinator of the GCAG (https://hrlevenson.wixsite.com/gcag), said, “In his article, Schlosser poses original and creative thoughts on what our present leaders should consider in enhancing the image of our industry and interest in joining it.
