Mankato, MN -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/31/2014 -- PDP Solutions was featured in the current issue of AutomationMedia.com. The article authored by manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler was titled, “Automation Success Only Possible through Employee Engagement and Communication.” Cutler discussed how employee engagement in manufacturing requires a systematic and tested method of reaching employees with important messages.
According to Cutler, “Balancing the sheer volume of communication is congruent with lean manufacturing policies and principles. Employees on the plant floor can ill afford to be deluged with emails. Aggregating mass email messages and reducing email overload is a best practice.”
Louise Dickmeyer, President of People Driven Performance (PDP Solutions) shared, "Weekly news can be a good way to break down silos within an organization by sharing the activities and news from one division across the wider organization and vice versa. Manufacturers must include strategy-specific messages to help employees connect their day-to-day efforts with the aspirations of the company. It helps when manufacturing firms use strong visuals, such as pictures of people in action."
