Packbridge is an international packaging and logistics clusters formed in 2010. We are a rapidly growing network for the packaging industry and all its stakeholders – customers, suppliers, researchers and innovators. The idea of Packbridge is to create a meeting place that naturally connects industry with academia, research with commercial application, and – perhaps most – people with people.
Our next event
How to attract the right talent to the packaging industry?
There’s a great need for skilled labor, not only in the packaging industry but a general need in all industries. Packbridge has among other things been involved and helped the YH education as Packaging Technician to get started in Eslöv, and in Sunne and Stockholm there are programs that’s focusing on packaging design. Many of those who attend these courses get a job immediately, or soon after completion of studies. This proves the need.
In these cases, we talk current situation, but it is important to lift your gaze towards the horizon and see what will be needed in the future. What future skills do we need to attract to the industry? How will this be accomplished? What are the arguments that appeal to future talents to work in the packaging industry? How do we profile ourselves and become interesting for different competences?
This is what we’ll address in Packbridge After 3 on September 23rd. We will also try to define what future needs the packaging industry will need to cover to comply with trends like digitization and urbanization, to name but a few.
