Manufacturing Institute Report: Top Contributors to Employee Engagement & Retention

In response to growing concerns over talent attraction and retention across all industries – including manufacturing – the Manufacturing Institute partnered with the American Physiological Association to conduct a robust survey of more than 570 front-line and supervisor-level manufacturing workers to determine the top contributing factors to employee engagement, retention and job satisfaction.

The most commonly-cited reasons for staying with an employer were enjoying the work performed (83%), a sense of job stability and security (79%), the employer’s family-oriented culture (69%) and company encouragement of work-life balance (68%).

Being involved in decision-making and goal setting, having relative autonomy in how a task is performed and being on a track for eventual promotion were also very important factors in employee retention. The full report can be accessed by clicking HERE.
