The Financial Imperative: We Need a Bigger Pie
According to the Brewers Association, the number of breweries in the U.S. more than quadrupled from 2008 to 2018. There are now more than 7,300 breweries operating in the U.S., over 98 percent of which are craft breweries. The industry is larger and more vibrant than ever.
However, with brewery additions significantly outpacing growth in production volume, the craft brewing industry finds itself in a unique situation. The size of the proverbial pie is stabilizing, but more and more people are hoping to claim a slice. In order to ensure the future health of the industry, we need to cultivate new markets. We need to make a bigger pie!
The Entrepreneurial Imperative: 21st Century Business Thrive with Innovation
The removal of occupational barriers for women and people of color was a major contributor to economic growth in the U.S. during the second half of the 20th century. The U.S. labor force continues to change in the 21st century. According to the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, "people of color will soon represent the majority of the country’s population, workforce, and consumers." The success of the craft brewing industry rests in developing a well-prepared, healthy, and diverse workforce.
Organizations that actively embrace this change will be well positioned to reap the benefits of the growing diversity in the U.S. workforce, bringing together different approaches, experiences, and perspectives. Research makes one essential point increasingly clear, businesses with more diverse workforces perform better financially.
