Manufacturing companies face a unique challenge when it comes to communicating with a large, deskless workforce.
Chief among them is that employees don’t have access to a smartphone or computer while on the production floor. And many on the production floor don’t even have a company email address.
This creates multiple challenges when it comes to driving operational efficiencies, engaging employees, and showcasing innovation. Further complicating things for production facilities, each of these three priorities is made up of a variety of sub-challenges, from attracting and retaining talent, through keeping up with safety and compliance regulations.
Yet many of these challenges can be addressed through a well-planned internal communications strategy—one that’s designed to reach each employee with the right information when and where they need it.
