Survey results: Does your facility host site tours/special events for members of the community?

Dec. 9, 2019
In a small survey base, 75% of respondents have participated in student outreach programs.

Held annually on the first Friday in October, and with events continuing throughout the month, Manufacturing Day helps show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders.

Last year, 275,000 people participated in nearly 3,000 MFG Day events across North America—and more than 80 percent of students said they became more convinced that manufacturing provides interesting and rewarding careers after attending these events.

Plant Services asked online readers their thoughts on the importance of Manufacturing Day and other community outreach programs. Following are the complete survey responses.
