WorkJam’s digital workplace provides manufacturers with the tools they need to meet the demands of the manufacturing employee through greater employee engagement
Very few industries operate with more pressure on labor issues than manufacturing.
The challenges from globalization, outsourcing, shrinking labor market, brain-drain, recruitment, worker motivation, union and safety rules and requirements, and heavy price competition are causing manufacturers to be more agile than ever in the management of their labor.
How can manufacturers win?
Engaged employees. By cultivating a positive workplace experience, employers can boost employee productivity and knowledge, while reducing turnover and cutting operational costs through a superior employee experience.
In short, employees have come to expect a better employee experience. They expect to be informed and connected with their employer, feel well-equipped to do their job, and to know they are being treated fairly, and being kept safe. They want more control and flexibility over their schedules regarding when and how many hours they work each week. They want their voices to be heard and to be recognized and rewarded for their achievements.
