How to Keep Your Manufacturing Employees Engaged?

A common mistake many Salt Lake City companies make is assuming that the more blue-collar positions will always have turnover and simply expect it and plan for it in the budget.

At TalentTeam, our recruiters specialize in placing employees in the perfect jobs for their skill sets and personalities. We work with Salt Lake City companies to place employees in jobs they’ll love. Here are some tips our recruiters have discovered to encourage employee excitement about their job:

The Right Employee for the Right Job

Give Your Employees the Right Tools

Manufacturing can be challenging for your employees, but you can make it easier on them and keep them motivated for work by providing the right tools. In addition to providing the correct workmanship tools they’ll need in their position, you need to also provide tools for employee engagement. This can mean regular check-in opportunities, easily understandable information about the tools and lines for which your employees will be working, and access to regular training to keep your employees up-to-date on safety and the requirements of their positions.

Individualized Attention

If your employees feel seen and heard, they are more likely to stay at your manufacturing company. TalentTeam has worked with Salt Lake City companies for decades and we’ve found employers that speak and engage with their employees individually will have less turnover and more employment success. Take time for the following:

  • Regular check-ins with individual employees

  • Listen and hear what your employees need
  • Implement changes when necessary
