Employee engagement in Manufacturing

Build a culture that works for all your people

Leaders in the manufacturing industry face unique people challenges. Building a brilliant employee experience, attracting new people, building diversity, improving health and safety, and making a positive commercial impact are to name a few, and so the talent pool has significantly declined over recent years.

And, with large ‘deskless’ workforces, manufacturing organisations often struggle to reach and engage all their people.

WorkBuzz helps address these challenges and more – using accessible surveys and regular employee listening to drive engageme

Premier Foods refresh their view and focus to ensure every voice is listened to and valued

Premier Foods used the WorkBuzz platform to gather key insights to inform their Inclusion & Diversity strategy. Based on the survey findings, they implemented the following actions:

  • Gravitas workshops offered to staff
  • Reviews of policies and procedures for working parents
  • #oktobeme stories shared across the organisation



The importance of employee listening

A perfect storm created by Covid-19, The Great Resignation, Brexit, IR35, skills shortages, an ageing workforce, and the cost-of-living crisis has seen the number of employees in the construction sector consistently fall over the past few years.

The ensuing war for talent will only be won by organisations that have a strong employee listening strategy. Running regular employee surveys and listening closely to your people gives you a true view of how your workforce feels – and provides the insights you need to assess and improve the drivers of employee engagement.



“We have been very pleased with WorkBuzz. The past 12 months have been massively challenging and the insights we have gained have helped to inform key business and people decisions. Most impressive is their service ethos, speed and adaptability.”

David Wilkinson, Human Resources Director, Premier Foods.
