In the french department of Aisne, local companies are experiencing a shortage of workers in the food and cosmetics sectors. Five of them have come together to work on their recruitment and skills issues: Fruits Rouges, L'Oréal, Mondelez, Nestlé and Cpf. Located in the Saint-Quentin, Laon and Vervins areas, the companies report common difficulties in recruiting certain profiles that are in demand: packaging agents/line drivers and manufacturing agents in industry.
To overcome this imbalance between the supply of and demand for skills in the employment basin, they have joined forces within Agro-Cosm, a real training project in the region. In addition to creating jobs, this project aims to anticipate the retirement of workers in the years to come.
