Episode #64 - Help Wanted, and Fast!

Guest: Stephanie Neil, Editor in Chief, OEM Magazine

It’s 2021 and we are hopefully approaching the tail end of a global pandemic that shuttered businesses and eliminated thousands of jobs. Despite these factors, the packaging and processing workforce continues to struggle to fill career providing positions. Today we talk with Editor in Chief Stephanie Neil for the inaugural unPACKed with OEM Magazine. Neil goes beyond the numbers and the data points and gets to the real crux of the issues causing manufacturing to continue to have a hard time filling well-paying positions. She also provides added perspective with her expert-level knowledge of women in the workforce due to her role in PMMI's Packaging and Processing Women's Leadership Network.
