Digital innovation could play a key role in helping UK food manufacturers to improve both recruitment and retention amid a worsening labour crisis.

That’s according to expert speakers at Food Manufacture’s latest webinar.

Sponsored by Redzone, with insights from Made Smarter UK and Silven Recruitment, this free hour-long event takes a close look at the challenges many manufacturers currently face across both recruitment and retention. It drills into the impact of an increasingly digital supply chain and the skills gaps it creates. Finally, it sets out the ways in which digital tools and technologies can provide a solution. 

Alain Dilworth, programme manager at Made Smarter UK, provides an overview of how the government-created initiative can partner with manufacturers to provide advice on how tech and automation could provide a boost to their business, as well as practical and financial support with its implementation.

Digital skills gaps

Ian Simkins, chief executive at Silven Recruitment, lays out the digital skills gaps that all manufacturers must grapple with in the years ahead and how to overcome the negative perceptions that see them currently lose out to Silicon Valley-esque tech start-ups.

And Luke Savage, coaching director at Redzone, provides practical insights into the way in which digital platforms can deliver multifaceted benefits to manufacturers, from smoothing out communication between teams, to boosting efficiency and improving engagement.
