Abstract The automotive industry is at the forefront of technological innovation and economic growth. However, it faces significant challenges in manpower management, particularly due to rigid labor laws and complex legal systems. These challenges are exacerbated when addressing temporary workforce increases to meet demand fluctuations. This paper aims to discuss the multifaceted issues that arise in the context of labor flexibility, talent acquisition, and retention strategies within the automotive sector. Firstly, the industry contends with the difficulty of attracting and retaining talent in a competitive landscape where technology companies and startups often offer more appealing opportunities. The rapid pace of technological advancements demands a workforce that is adaptable and skilled in new and evolving competencies. However, traditional labor laws often do not accommodate the flexible arrangements required to attract such talent. Secondly, the high turnover rate within the automotive industry further complicates manpower management. The need to cultivate leaders from within is hindered by generational differences and a redundant skill set that is increasingly becoming automated. This situation is compounded by the industry’s struggle to maintain employee health and safety, which is paramount given the physical nature of manufacturing jobs. Lastly, the legal complexities associated with temporary staffing to manage demand peaks present a significant hurdle. The industry must navigate a labyrinth of employment regulations that vary by region and often restrict the ability to swiftly adjust workforce levels in response to market needs. The automotive industry must develop robust strategies to overcome these challenges. This includes fostering organizational resilience, reimagining talent management, and advocating for labor law reforms that reflect the dynamic nature of the industry and its workforce requirements. The ability to adapt to these challenges will be a determining factor in the industry’s capacity to sustain innovation and growth in the coming years.
