Automation and Controls Today Talks Manufacturing Employee Engagement with Louise Dickmeyer of PDP Solutions
Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/21/2014 -- In the current issue of Automation & Controls Today, manufacturing journalist Thomas R. Cutler, explored the relationship between employee engagement and retaining skilled employees. In the article, titled, “Employee Engagement, Employee Retention and Employee Communication,” Cutler explained engaged employees stay with companies for a long time.
Manufacturers are having the hardest time filling skilled production jobs that fuel their ability to innovate and grow, even in the face of high unemployment. Efforts to develop the skills of current employees are falling, and technology advancement without a future workforce puts manufacturers at great risk. Retaining great employees keeps hiring and training costs low. Retaining employees can only be achieved with consistent and effective employee communication.
According to Louise Dickmeyer, President of PDP Solutions, “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, spend less time looking at the clock, and focus more on work excellence.”
