While benefits are certainly an important part of the retention equation, communicating the value of those benefits is a struggle in the manufacturing industry. At an estimated 25% employment engagement level, the manufacturing sector trails the national average by 8 percentage points.
Everyone wants an “easy button,” especially manufacturers. To help your employees fully understand and appreciate their benefits, it helps to have a real-time total rewards solution—a program that provides each employee with a complete view of their entire benefits and compensation package with just a few taps on their cell phone.
This is especially important in the manufacturing industry, where few employees have access to a computer at work or the flexibility throughout their day to check their compensation.
