Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2015 -- President of PDP Solutions, Louise Dickmeyer was recently interviewed by Todd Schnick of IntrepidNOW on manufacturing leadership communication. This first part of a six part series, titled, "The power of improved internal communications," explores the importance of effective communication at the workplace.
Dickmeyer explained, "There are so many factors in the marketplace converging to create a perfect storm in the workplace. We have employee engagement at an all-time low, the economy is heating up, there is greater pressure to retain skilled workers, and the war on talent is getting fiercer all the time. The average age of manufacturer skilled workers is 56. We are on a brink of the largest shift in human capital in history: 10,000 Baby Boomers are retiring each day and a new generation millennials coming in so an employer's ability to engage and effectively communicate is becoming an absolute imperative."
