Top Challenges for the Manufacturing Industry

Attracting Skilled Talent
Attraction and Retention

In a pandemic, the manufacturing industry has struggled with labor shortages and resignations while the economy is also trying to recover. Competitive wages and total rewards packages are essential to attract talent in a hot job market.

Planning for Pay Increases
Planning for Pay Increases

After a rough two years of difficult working conditions during a pandemic in combination with rising inflation and increases in opportunity, employees are expecting higher than average pay increases to keep pace with the market.

Managing Pay Equity

In a hyperactive job market, you have to think about pay equity. Pay for new hires can outpace tenured employees, even managers, which can put you at risk of high voluntary turnover.

Workplace Flexibility

Following the pandemic, employees want to be able to work from home at least some of the time. The manufacturing industry is now having to consider location-based pay strategies that can accommodate remote work for at least some of its employees that don't have to be on site.

Stop waiting on surveys
