Mankato, MN -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/29/2014 -- Automation is often touted as the primary driver of productivity improvement. PDP Solutions suggests that employee engagement is a better benchmark for productivity. Louise Dickmeyer, PDP Solutions’ President, suggested, “Engaged employees produce quality products causing a direct impact on manufacturers’ bottom line.
Increased employee engagement can be evaluated by the attention paid to customers, product quality, colleagues and employer's interests. Engaged employees are healthier, take fewer sick days, arrive for work on time more often, and spend less time looking at the clock, and focus more on work excellence.”
In the manufacturing environment, plant floor workers who enjoy work are more likely to recommend the place of employment to friends, get more work done on any given day, and are more likely to remain long-term loyal employees. Manufacturing workers with a positive attitude are less likely to gossip.
Just as engagement is contagious, so is disengagement, especially when managers get disengaged. Recent data revealed that manufacturing employees reporting to a disengaged manager is four times more likely to be disengaged than if working for an engaged manager.
When an employee is kept in the dark about a manufacturing organization (current state, future state, and the big picture), they become more isolated, less enthusiastic about work and the employer.
