The manufacturing industry and HR benefits: The recovery starts here

What should the manufacturing industry consider when it comes to benefits?

A small study from 2021* suggests that medical insurance, overtime pay, annual leave, and custom benefits that are monetary and non-monetary are the keys to HR benefits. They also say that 55% of respondents said that benefits influences their performance and 70% said they strongly agreed / agreed that it creates “sound industrial relationships”.

But is there a one size fits all solution when it comes to HR benefits for the manufacturing industry?

With so many different manufacturing businesses out there, it’s difficult to say a definitive yes to this question. What works for one business might not work for another. But the common thread through experts and employees within the manufacturing industry is that employees need to be connected through technology. For this, it’s recommended that employers consider a cloud-based solution that has a mobile first, digital platform that has a first-class communication engine to drive specific benefits to their employees. Under current conditions and situations, there’s never been a greater need for employers and employees to communicate in a fast and efficient way.

Keeping track of employee well-being and performance is easier with technology

With some manufacturing experts saying remuneration is not as important as feeling valued, it’s even more important for a company to invest in a total rewards and benefits platform. In times of uncertainty and instability, employers need to make sure their employees are looked after. Once a HR platform is rolled out across an organization or organizations, an employer will generally find they will have more time to focus on urgent issues than they did completing dated HR administration.
