How to Create an Effective Communications Strategy in Manufacturing and Production Facilities

About this Guide

Manufacturing and production companies face a variety of unique challenges—delivering high-quality products under strict deadlines, reducing recordable incidents, continually improving operations, and keeping staff engaged and informed. Compounding the challenges in achieving these goals, a lot of the manufacturing workforce is deskless, without access to personal devices while on the production floor. This creates a distinct set of communication hurdles that manufacturers must overcome to reach all employees.

Manufacturers, warehouses, and other production-based companies are all seeking to optimize operations and improve productivity while also retaining their employees. The factory of the future features integrated, automated, and timely communications designed to impact production-based businesses in these key areas.

So, what does good communication within a production facility look like? It must be comprehensive—tailored to both the needs of the business as well as the needs of the employee, based on where each person is throughout the course of a shift. More specifically, an end-to-end communications strategy should account for productivity, operational efficiency, and employee communications needs.

Read this guide to learn about the top things your communications should address and how to build a comprehensive employee comms strategy.

Yet, addressing this challenge is paramount for ensuring the success of the business.
