1 May 2018

Atlanta, GA – May 2, 2018 – Lucas Group, North America’s premier executive recruiting firm, announced that it is exhibiting at the Industry Week Manufacturing & Technology Expo. The 3-day event takes place at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, NC from May 8-10.

Lucas Group manufacturing recruiters will be at Booth 725 sharing their expert insights into the fast-evolving landscape of Industry 4.0. This includes lean and continuous improvement, leadership, technology integration, and talent management to achieve operational excellence.

“Manufacturing is facing a talent crisis, with 2 million positions projected to remain open due to a hiring shortfall by 2035 according to the Manufacturing Institute,” says Charlie Wilgus, General Manager Manufacturing. “At the same time, Industry 4.0 is creating exciting new career opportunities. Companies that adjust their recruitment strategies can access a previously untapped talent base that’s key to powering the industry’s digital transformation.”

Lucas Group’s manufacturing recruiters have published a series of white papers and blog articles to provide greater insight into key Industry Week topics. These include the white papers “Industry 4.0: What’s Next for Manufacturing”, authored by Executive Senior Partner Daniel Chang and “How to Hire Next Gen Manufacturing Talent” by Managing Partner Jennifer Bowers.

Blog post articles include: “4 Strategies for Recruiting Millennial Talent” by Gordon Bowen, Senior Executive Search Consultant; “4 Cybersecurity Essentials for Manufacturing” by David Armendariz, Managing Partner; and “Reshoring and Industry 4.0: What’s Next?” by Mark Sanborn, Executive Senior Partner.

The blog posts are available on Lucas Group’s career advice site, Your Career Intel.

In addition to Manufacturing recruitment, Lucas Group specializes in Accounting & Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Legal, Military Transition and Sales & Marketing recruitment.
