Human Resource Management for the Manufacturing Industry

Manufacturing Workforce Management Challenges

These days, manufacturers face a number of significant HR and workforce challenges. EPAY Systems’ full human capital management solution can help. We can help you hire more efficiently. Manage and pay workers with precision. Streamline administration. All while keeping your organization compliant and your people healthy and safe. And in the wake of COVID-19, that’s never been more important:

  • The workforce is shrinking: The average age of a highly skilled worker in this industry is 56, and mass retirements are looming. Furthermore, as younger workers switch companies in search of better-paying positions, turnover rates are climbing.
  • There are skilled positions to fill and a scarcity of talent: Manufacturing is an overlooked sector of employment. With an aging workforce and not enough invested in training, highly-skilled applicants are becoming more difficult to find.
  • Compliance issues abound: Labor might not be a manufacturer’s largest cost, but it is likely its biggest headache, due to compliance with issues like sick leave, complex pay rules, blended overtime, and union rules – just to name a few.
