Employee Engagement

Did You Know?

$11 billion are lost annually due to high turnover of employees nationally? (Bureau of National Affairs) Or that a staggering 71% of workers are disengaged from their jobs? As a manufacturing leader, you are focused on reducing costs related to hiring while striving to retain a productive workforce in a highly competitive talent market. But how are you driving increased innovation, productivity, and bottom line performance with a workforce that is disengaged?

Disengaged employees may disconnect from the workplace and become less productive than their counterparts. They may negatively influence customer relations, sales, quality, productivity, and overall employee retention. By creating a workforce of engaged employees that are motivated, committed and focused on doing the job right you will naturally drive the positive, measurable results to your bottom line.

Begin communicating with your workforce to better understand your employees’
thoughts about the internal culture and processes. Through an Employee Engagement
Survey, you can identify how your employees truly feel about the current workplace
and then create a strategy for workforce improvement. Listening to the voice of your
employees is critical to see problem areas within the workplace and to recognize what
is working well.
