Manufacturing Day 2015 Helps Change Perception of Industry

Plastics Business

Teachers, students, parents/influencers and employers shared their perspective on Manufacturing Day (MFG DAY®) using the new Deloitte perception survey developed in collaboration with The Manufacturing Institute.

The survey was distributed to more than 2,500 manufacturing hosts across the US to gather national data from teachers, students and parents on how MFG DAY events truly make a difference in local communities. The survey found after attending Manufacturing Day events, 81 percent of student respondents are more convinced manufacturing provides careers that are both interesting and rewarding and 71 percent are more likely to tell friends, family, parents or colleagues about manufacturing.
