4 Ways Manufacturers Can Build A Great Work Culture

August 12, 2021 | 21 views

In the midst of a labor shortage, you managed to get their attention. They listened, during the interview, as you described the work. You put in the time to answer every question, and even a few follow-up questions the next day. They weighed the pay and the benefits you promised. But they took a job somewhere else instead. While the trend is for white collar workers to work from home, blue collar workers don’t have that option. This is becoming a question of work culture disparity. Why did that candidate pass on working for you? The pay you offered was competitive. The work itself wasn’t out of line. The hours weren’t unusual. It had to do with the work culture. In a labor shortage, work culture matters more than ever.

Manufacturers have a tough road ahead of them. Workplace culture is about personal well-being, which working from home directly addresses. Millennial and Gen Z workers, who value culture and work-life balance more than any generation before them, are looking for a work culture that is difficult to offer for blue collar employees. So how do you build a great work culture at your manufacturing plant? We’ll show you four ways you can make your culture stand out from the competition, without breaking the bank. Not only will you attract new hires, but you’ll retain your current valuable employees. Great work culture starts with empathy and respect. Empathy and respect don’t cost you anything, but they are priceless.

It’s kind of a no-brainer, but these two are the foundation of great work culture. Employees want to feel valued. How do you do that?

1. Treat them as you want to be treated.
People have lives outside of work. You do yourself, and you know that when things come up in your life, you hope others understand and try to make allowances. Do the same for employees. Be respectful and show empathy, even if you can’t personally identify with or understand what they’re going through.

2. See employees as individuals.
No employee wants to feel like a replaceable cog in the machine, or just another number being tracked in the system. Is there anything worse than a manager who doesn’t even know the names of the people working for them? While people are easily placed into categories based on demographics, job positions, and skills for various reasons, seeing them only as a member of a faceless category makes it easy to treat them as less than human. Individuals have personalities, work styles, quirks, strengths, and weaknesses. Pay attention to these kinds of things. Learn names and interests. Praise the great things they do. Communicate with them with their specific interests and personality in mind.

3. Learn how to show empathy in tangible ways.
Empathy sounds like some vague emotional thing that can’t be measured. In reality, empathy in action is very tangible. A caring, empathetic work culture offers:
Easy hiring processes. Finding, applying for, and interviewing for a job shouldn’t be a job in itself. Make the hiring process easy. Put all the information you can out there so they don’t waste their time applying for a job that isn’t a good fit for them. Thoughtful onboarding and training. Train based not only on the position, but in light of the new hire’s preferences and personality. The hiring process should provide you with information on how they best learn. Good benefits and compensation. It goes without saying that during a labor shortage, especially, your benefits and compensation must be very competitive.
Flexible scheduling- This is about work-life balance, and allowing people the necessary time and space to breathe instead of work dictating when everything in life happens.
Meaningful tasks - Cogs in a machine do meaningless, menial, and repetitive tasks. While some of these tasks are inevitable, help employees see how they are necessary. Show them how it all fits into the process and give importance to the tasks. Avoid busywork just to keep someone occupied. If there’s downtime, use it for cross-training.
Valuable feedback - Both positive and negative feedback can be valuable (or worthless) depending on how you communicate. Make sure your feedback is constructive, with specific examples and actionable points. Instead of crushing employees, you want to help them grow.
Empathy is caring about people, and every part of the hiring and work process allows for you to do that. When empathy is at the center of your culture, from hiring to how you plan your shifts, employees can feel it. They know you value them. They know that’s rare in the manufacturing world, and they’ll want to stick with you and grow with your company.

Make your workplace flexible
Creating a flexible workplace is one of those tangible ways of showing empathy. Instead of rigid shifts and schedules that don’t bend for anyone or any situation, a flexible workplace means giving employees more control over their time. Doctor’s appointments, parent-teacher conferences, car service appointments, and just about any other emergency can pop up during an employee’s shift. Being flexible (and empathetic) means you make the effort to allow them to deal with these things without undue stress or pressure.

You know what happens when you give your employees room to handle every area of their lives?

You end up with happier employees who are less stressed. These are employees who stick around and provide good word-of-mouth to potential hires. They are also employees who have a positive effect on your bottom line. It’s true that this kind of flexibility could be challenging for you when it comes to scheduling shifts. That’s why it’s important to use the right scheduling tools that make flexible self scheduling and unexpected shift coverage easy. It would be a real shame if you made life difficult for employees simply because you didn’t have the right tools to inject some flexibility into your schedule. Here’s a bonus, if you’re not convinced of the merit of being flexible, consider this: not only does this kind of flexibility help your employees, but it makes your business more agile. You’ll be able to adapt to market changes much easier than if you have a rigid work structure in place.

Go mobile and give employees more control
The technology you use should be the technology your employees want. They are already living on their mobile phones. That’s where your scheduling and communication should be. By going mobile-first, when it comes to creating the employee schedule, you give power back to your employees. It’s part of being flexible, and caring about them enough to not demand that they drive in or call someone at the plant to find out if a schedule has been posted in the break room.

Instead, they can confirm shifts, request time off, and see everything they need to know about their schedule or open shifts they could claim. They can communicate easily with each other and with management, from one mobile app. Employees have more control over their life. And even better, you don’t have to micromanage. No more long, stressful hours of scheduling and dealing with time-off requests. Set up the structure, plug in the shifts, and let the automation and employee participation kick in.

Increase employee engagement
Employee engagement is one of those buzz-word phrases that can easily turn into a list of gimmicks rather than being genuine. A cafeteria birthday party is nice, sure, but it’s not real engagement. It’s a one-off nod to an employee. So how do you really stay engaged with your employees?

Make sure your employees feel appreciated, noticed, and recognized. Reward positive behavior, no matter how small it might seem. Make it easy for employees to share ideas for improvement, and then actually listen to them. Implement ideas that are valid.
Create opportunities for employee socializing, whether on the job at break, or outside work hours. It’s the one huge benefit in-person workers have over those who work from home. Make it count. Create work events so that employees can get to know each other. It’s especially important for shift workers, who may not otherwise meet others on different shifts.
Make it easy for employees to communicate easily with each other within safe boundaries. Great example? Use When I Work’s chat feature, built right into the platform employees are already using to monitor their work schedule. They can talk to managers and each other without sharing personal contact information or playing phone tag.
Whether it’s a long list of employee engagement ideas, or a much shorter one, the cornerstone is the same: care about people individually. And then, give them the tools to easily balance a healthy work and personal life. Creating a great work culture doesn’t happen in a day. It takes work, and cultural shifts are some of the toughest wheels to turn. By choosing the right tools, you can grease those wheels. When I Work can help manufacturers like you by providing you with what you need to be flexible, mobile-first, with a work-chat feature that makes communication and employee connection simple

Why Do Companies Hire on Third-Party Payroll?

Article | August 2, 2022

While most operators would suggest that salaries and payments are the business’s strategic components since it populates the Sales, General & Administrative line item, a significant portion of businesses across the globe outsource it to third-party service providers. As per a Deloitte survey, 24%-27% of firms across North America, Latin America, EMEA, and APAC outsourced their payroll management function to third-party vendors. Payroll management services generally include a basket of services like: Integrating time-sheets into payable salaries and tax liabilities.

HR Compliance: Get Back to Basics During the Great Reset

Article | August 8, 2022

We hear the term “getting back to basics” quite often and we’re hearing it a lot lately. Regular readers of HR Bartender know that I’m a fan of consulting the dictionary, so I did a quick search to see what “getting back to basics” means. The Collins Dictionary defines it as “concentrating on simple, important ideas or activities.”Getting back to basics can be an opportunity to refocus and streamline. It can be ways to deliver great work with fewer steps. To become more proactive, especially if the organization feels they have been very reactive lately. Getting back to basics can help us spend time on things that are directly aligned with the business. The reason I’m bringing this up is because now is a great time to evaluate HR compliance processes. If we step back for a second, let’s look at what’s going on right now. From a business perspective, organizations are redefining the customer experience. I’m not saying that’s bad. But companies are trying to set new expectations with customers. I’m hearing an increasing number of people talk about spending some or all their time back in the office. Even employees who are 100% remote are talking about going in for special company events. So not only are companies setting new expectations with customers, but they’re setting new expectations with employees. While we’re going through this reset, it only makes sense to examine the way we’re doing things in HR.

What Unconventional People Analytics Looks Like?

Article | June 24, 2022

HR analytics was first conceptualized in 1911 in the book ‘The Principles of Scientific Management’ by Frederick Taylor. Since then, it has become a prominent aspect of people management. Its application in performance optimization, employee retention and employee engagement is unprecedented. However, HR analytics has contributed in a multitude of ways to improving decision-making. Its scope is expanding and spilling into other areas of business. Many organizations are uncovering ways to use their people insights to inform decisions that have nothing to do with hiring. Applying HR Analytics to Identify a New Office Location The tech giant Cisco demonstrated that the use of people analytics can take many different shapes and forms. The company used data to guide its decision on choosing a new office building location, optimize space and build a positive culture right off the bat. Powered by the company’s data from across its 266 offices in 87 countries, the people analytics team got into action to identify usage rates and costs in the organizations. The team took into consideration the neighbourhood and community around them to assess the business outcomes. The team went over and above to examine the availability of talent from nearby universities in relation to the areas their competitors served. Predicting ROI on an Apprenticeship Training Program Multinational energy provider, SSE, deployed an in-depth analysis of their trained apprenticeship program to calculate ROI. It not only enabled the company to make a business case for its apprenticeship program to senior management but also see the true value of its initiatives through a financial lens. SSE discovered that every £1 invested collectively by the individual, society, and employer in a fully trained apprenticeship yields a return of £4.29 to the economy. Making Diversity More Than Just a Buzzword The carpool service, BlaBlaCar, used data analytics in HR to review job applications that were comprised of biased language and messaging. The company also structured its interviews in a way that was inclusive, a tactic that helped them convert candidates into employees and increase the diversity on their teams. London-based survey company Saberr employed HR analytics to explore candidates’ behavioral compatibility, core values, and diversity to identify if a candidate will feel welcome in an organization and the strength of their interpersonal relationships. Beyond the Hiring Horizon A 2019 study by Chalutz Ben-Gal discovered that recruitment and workforce planning are the two areas of HR that yielded the highest returns. By using data to fuel insights outside of hiring and people management, some organizations are demonstrating the innovative ways that HR analytics can power business outcomes. Whether to pinpoint a new regional office, assessing investment decisions or spearheading diversity and inclusion, leveraging people analytics is a matter of thinking outside the proverbial box and maximizing the combined power of people and their behaviors to drive innovation.

Purposeful Employee Well-being: Making Data-based Decisions

Article | May 19, 2022

The pandemic uncovered several insights into the significance and connection between health, wellbeing, and productivity at work. Whether you work from home or in an office, without employee well-being, there is no organizational resilience. HR leaders are recognizing this bare truth and are focusing on more than just physical health. There is a push to promote holistic wellness, which includes physical, mental, social, financial, and psychological well-being. Employee Well-Being and the Modern Organization Studies have proved that employee well-being has a direct impact on revenue and profitability. It affects the overall employee morale, productivity, and employee experience. Focusing on employee well-being leads to a 41% drop in absenteeism, as well as more innovation, better retention, and lower healthcare costs. As workplaces have undergone much transformation in recent years, employees’ expectations from a health and wellness perspective have taken on a new shape. Forward-looking organizations are committing to developing meaningful initiatives that foster well-being in the workplace. Organizations do not intend to stop providing health coverage and benefits. They are proactively infusing well-being into the work culture, employee experience, and career growth as these factors are most likely to take precedence in the near future. In fact, according to a study by TeamStage, 78% of employees were more likely to continue working because they liked the benefits. In this context, data and a handful of key metrics will set the tone for HR professionals to deliver more value to their employees. Mapping the Metrics That Matter So what metrics will play a key role in bringing modern, employee-oriented wellness and health programs? According to a Paycor survey, 17% of HR professionals were able to provide a concrete response to changing their approach to well-being in 2022. Some initiatives include: Mental health awareness and training Discount on mental health apps Virtual exercise programs A 24/7 support helpline Employee Assistance Program (EAP) The first viable option is to implement a meaningful way to measure employee happiness in the workplace. For instance, international electronics giant Hitachi used wearable devices to monitor a range of activities, including sitting, standing, talking, and even typing, to create a measuring algorithm. Hitachi identified and pre-empted stressors and health concerns in the workplace by offering corresponding benefits. However, implementing benefits isn’t enough. Many employers are calculating employee interaction with their wellness offering through online portals. This key metric is used to determine whether or not employees are making the most of their benefits. In turn, this demonstrates their engagement levels with the company. Parting Words As the work landscape has shifted from the office to homes and job markets have become more volatile; stress, anxiety, and mental illnesses are mainstays of employee concerns. The pandemic underlined the importance of having a robust grip on employee well-being for organizations to be able to survive such drastic transformations. However, employee wellness has proven to be a cornerstone of sustainability and resilience all along. Organizations that hope to thrive and grow well into the future will need to highlight employee well-being as an integral part of their workforce strategy.
