Achieving manufacturing excellence through employee retention

Plastic Injection Molding

There was a time many decades ago, when employees joined companies with the expectation of a long career.   Companies were loyal to employees, and the employees reciprocated.  Today, the employment picture is much different.   Higher unemployment rates, coupled with the constant pressure to reduce head-count have served to create a job market where neither side of the equation seems to feel a strong loyalty to one another.  In fact, the most recent recession has incentivized many unhappy workers to stay put until better opportunities become available.  According to the "What's Working" research study  by Mercer, a global consulting firm “In the U.S., the percentage of workers who said they wanted to leave and get a new job rose nine percentage points, from 23% in 2005 to about one in three, or 32%, in 2010.”  If the employment rates continue to improve, many of these workers will move onto other opportunities.
