Talent Attraction & Retention
AIA helps member companies take a comprehensive approach to talent attraction and recruitment for the aerospace and defense industry, from early career hires through senior leadership searches.
AIA Position StatementLook Toward the Future
Aerospace and defense is the cornerstone of the U.S.’s national security mission, and its workforce is its crown jewel. As we look forward the future, we are reimagining the meaning and purpose of A&D employees to meet modern demands of the industry and engage new and diverse talent pools. Competition for talent has never been greater, and aerospace and defense has a unique value proposition to share with potential employees. Industry awareness, focus on its highly-technical methods and programs, and individualization of experience are critical to meeting our workforce needs.
Take Action Now
In order to continue to attract and retain world-class, highly technical talent to the industry, A&D must continue to share relevant messaging that highlights its innovative spirit, collaborative culture, and expanded opportunities outside of traditional career paths.
AIA supports both the individual and collective efforts of members to build, sustain, and expand the talent pipeline.
