From the first day every new employee who joins a manufacturing company is an opportunity to the C-level executives to build rapport, connection, and communication. From the first day new manufacturing employees start on the job, they begin to make judgments about the company, their manager, their peers, and the job they have been hired to do. Too many first days are wasted days with new employees sitting around doing nothing while they wait for their managers to pay attention to them. According to Louise Dickmeyer, President of PDP Solutions, there are effective ways to on-board a plant floor worker without them feeling overwhelmed and it starts with leadership communication. Often they are funneled into half-hearted orientation programs and bombarded with information overload. PDP Solutions revamps the communication strategy of manufacturing leaders from day 1 of a new worker joining the firm.
