Fewer Manufacturing Apprenticeships Increases Need for Retaining Current Workforce
Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/08/2014 -- Louise Dickmeyer, President of People Driven Performance (PDP) Solutions noted, “Some manufacturers are more impacted by a workforce. Attracting new workers is difficult because the training schools and apprentice programs are infrequent, creating a worker deficit. Keeping the experienced, trained, and proficient skilled worker engaged is vital to retaining the current workforce while they are needed to train the next generation of workers. This can only happen through effective employee communication.”
PDP Solutions, a software development company providing manufacturers internal and interactive communications announced that a detailed examination of the industry sectors most impacted by retention will be the subject of a series of case studies, whitepapers, blogs, and social media conversations.
Today's manufacturing and product development environments are more complex than they were a generation ago. Huge strides in technology have brought complex machinery and processes to the shop floor. Dickmeyer insisted that the modern frontline employee must keep up and that current manufacturing managers must keep his or her employees engaged, productive, and wanting to stay with the company for many years. Manufacturing firms can explore the value of a robust internal communications solution in this new complex business world.
