Studies have shown that approximately 67% of U.S. manufacturing companies are currently facing a worker shortage. This rate is dramatically higher than that of other private firms in the U.S. (See Appendix A). Subsequently there has been a huge push to recruit and advance female employees, which have been historically underrepresented. In order to do so, it is strongly encouraged that companies follow a strategy of Attract, Develop, Engage and Retain (A.D.E.R.) and employ as many best practices as possible.
