Manufacturing Executives Must Communicate with Millennials to Engage Them at Work


Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/23/2015 -- By 2025, millennials will make up 75% of the U.S. and Canadian workforces, meaning that pinpointing what drives millennial engagement, and also understanding how companies can help different generations work cohesively as a unit, is essential to running a successful workplace. Dale Carnegie Training recently conducted a study focusing on how to engage millennials at work, and found that 86% of millennials are significantly more likely to be engaged at work compared to baby boomers. The study also found that this generation of workers places a significant value on a number of attributes that they find are missing from their workplace including: doing work that is varied and interesting, open and honest communication with senior management, and the ability to learn and develop beyond their current job. Understanding these values, as well as the differences and similarities between millennials and baby boomers, is crucial for manufacturing executives to understand so they can successfully motivate all of their employees.

Increasingly manufacturers are hiring firms like PDP Solutions, outsourcing communication with plant floor employees to ensure they are appreciative of a positive workplace, engaged at their place of employment, and plan to continue working for the company for some time to come. Manufacturing leaders admit they are weak at this communication and need to find service providers who can assist.
