Summary of survey results:
Thirty-two employers responded to the survey, five of the employers said that they do not have an hourly production workforce. The data provided in this report is from the twenty-seven employers that do have an hourly production workforce -- 63% represent the manufacturing industry. The majority of the workforce (83%) is non-bargained, non-exempt.
Sixty-seven percent of the employers are experiencing difficulty attracting and retaining hourly production workers. The top three factors they attribute to the challenge are: 1) low wages, 2) the younger generations are going to colleges/universities instead of immediately entering the workforce, and 3) greater competition due to more companies are entering the manufacturing industry.
Organizations are making changes to their benefits package to improve recruitment and retention efforts. The most common benefits that are being offered are leave benefits, tuition reimbursement, reward & recognition programs, and creative shift scheduling.
