Siemens Tackles U.S. Skills Gap with Apprenticeships

Siemens AG said it had to start extensive apprenticeship programs in the U.S. as a shortfall of adequately qualified workers made it difficult to staff its gas-turbine factory in North Carolina.

“This is really helping to fill the skills gap that we’ve seen,” Siemens’ head of U.S. operations Eric Spiegel said in an interview with Bloomberg Television today. “We’ve also worked closely with one of the local universities to develop our engineers who can help us in our gas plant.”
