Praise Drives Productivity Improvements on the Manufacturing Plant Floor
Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2014 -- PDP Solution, a software development company providing an internal, innovative, and interactive communications system for manufacturing plant floor employees, highlighted the importance of human capital in the manufacturing sector; praising employees for good work is one way to build a positive work environment. Investment in human capital builds employee engagement, employee retention, and increased productivity.
Louise Dickmeyer, President of PDP Solutions shared the importance of building relationships for manufacturers in the company blog. Dickmeyer explained, “In my work in the employee communications field, I think about what needs to happen for real trust to build over time. If you want high levels of employee engagement on the shop floor, company leadership needs to address praise, clear communications, candor, and respect.”
Dickmeyer noted one of the essential components in communication is praise, “Always give credit where credit is due. You might not need so much praise in your corner office, but front line staff are all too often unaware of the impact and importance of their achievements. Take ten minutes to pay your high performers a personal visit and remind them of how much you and the company appreciate their hard work and achievements on the job. Be specific - call out an actual event or deed that exemplifies your praise of them.”
