Reshoring American Manufacturing Does Not Solve Poor Manufacturing Executive Communication Skills


Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/12/2015 -- Reshoring is great. It means more jobs back in the United States. It does not, however, solve the problem of poor communication on the part of manufacturing executives.

The Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) recently suggested that, "Now's the time for Americans to rally around the core of our economy: manufacturing. We're pleased to have the support of prominent voices in our community as we continue to champion what sets our country apart and will be the key to remaining strong in an increasingly competitive global marketplace, as the need for skilled labor swells to unprecedented levels," said Barbara Morrison, AME president. Harry Moser, founder of the Reshoring Initiative, has long been an advocate for AME's work in supporting North American manufacturers. Moser began the Reshoring Initiative in 2010 to bring secure, well-paying manufacturing jobs back to the United States. Ultimately to keep American plant floor workers happy manufacturing leaders are going to have to become more effective communicators or outsource the communication requirements to third party companies they way payroll and other services are addressed.
Increasingly manufacturers have started to outsource communication with plant floor workers to ensure they have the business, the payroll, and the growth domestically. PDP Solutions is a preferred third party vendor for this service.
