(Hartford Business Journal, 6/22/17)
The quality of Connecticut’s manufacturing workforce has improved and so has its ranking, according to the 2017 Manufacturing and Logistics Report Card.
Now in its 10th year, the report ranks each state in areas of the economy that underlie the success of manufacturing and logistics. It is produced by Ball State’s Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) for Conexus Indiana, that state’s advanced manufacturing initiative.
Connecticut grades improved in workforce, or so-called “human capital” from “C” to “B-,” benefits costs from “F” to “C-,” expected fiscal liability gap (“D-” to “D”) and productivity and innovation from “B-” to “B+.”
