Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/25/2015 -- PDP Solutions is helping manufacturing leaders bridge an obvious and painful communication generation gap. Manufacturing businesses are challenged with older leaders learning communication technologies of the younger generation. The ever changing world of technology means to communicate. The mean age of a manufacturing CEO in North America is 54. The world of texting was not around when these leaders started their manufacturing enterprise, yet to reach the best candidates of a younger generation to help with communication is not optional. North America's manufacturing sector is on an upward trajectory, but troublesome trends call its continued growth into question. A shortage of young talent, compounded by Baby Boomers' negative perceptions about Millennials, pose threats to the industry's expansion, It will take the concerted effort of every manufacturer to reach across generational lines, and bring in the people who are critical to the industry's continued success.
