Vice Presidents of Global Operations face a growing list of daunting challenges that negatively impact productivity, quality, safety, sustainability, and, ultimately, margin goals. Frontline employee challenges are at the top of this list, which have quickly become an existential threat to many otherwise successful industrial companies.
Despite 69% of workers claiming they will leave their manufacturing jobs within two years, there is some good news. LNS Research data shows that Future of Industrial Work (FOIW) Leaders are:
• Dramatically over-achieving frontline employee KPI goals (e.g., recruitment, attendance, training, engagement, and productivity)
• Significantly increasing adoption of best-practice process capabilities (e.g., work performance/task support, training/learning management, onboarding, change management, workforce scheduling)
• Proactively implementing Connected Frontline Workforce #CFW applications (e.g., upskilling employees with new processes and digital technologies, digitally enabling frontline workers, improving onboarding speed/time to productivity)
Learn how you can evolve your team’s leadership approach and develop a sustainable, human-centric workforce strategy by transforming the end-to-end frontline employee lifecycle.
At this LinkedIn Live Event, LNS Research President Matthew Littlefield and Research Analyst Allison Kuhn share insights from our latest research and provide practical guidance to industrial leaders looking for solutions to top manufacturing challenges.
