NEW BRITAIN, Conn. — It’s a push to get Connecticut’s workforce ready for the jobs of tomorrow. New Britain-based Stanley Black & Decker joined the National Manufacturers Association as it launched the Creators Wanted campaign. The national campaign, in collaboration with The Manufacturing Institute, aims to get people the skills to tackle advanced manufacturing jobs in the digital age. The campaign expands upon Stanley Black & Decker’s Manufactory 4.0, which opened in Hartford to train workers in adopting cutting edge technology.
“We have so many employed people in need of upscaling, and so many unemployed people who need jobs. A jobs-led recovery will be a manufacturing-led one and the widespread and pervasive adoption of industry 4.0 will be a key factor in that process, especially among our small and medium business community,” said Jim Loree, CEO of Stanley Black & Decker.
The National Association of Manufacturers says all businesses can benefit from tapping into a digital transformation and that will help them move forward after an uncertain year during the pandemic.
