Mankato, MN -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/30/2014 -- PDP Solutions President, Louise Dickmeyer suggested, “Employee retention comes from employee engagement.” Too often manufacturers fail to take a long-term view of employees. Manufacturers who view employees as integral and valuable parts of the company discover best practices in using downtime to improve employee effectiveness.
Dickmeyer noted, “Employee engagement benefits are realized from keeping people on board and long-term employee expertise is critical to success.”
When a company sees its frontline plant floor employees vital to prosperity, shopfloor employees are far more likely to make a long-term commitment to the manufacturer. Human Resource managers at manufacturing firms of all sizes have designed employee retention, engagement, and communication improvements as ongoing objectives.
These three objectives are frequently expressed by the lean manufacturing leadership team, reinforcing the impacts and improvements realized from employee retention. Less time back-filling open positions and more time empowering existing employees adds to the profitability of even the smallest manufacturing companies.
