Your deskless workers are disengaged

Deskless workers make up about 80% of the global workforce, but they are the least trusting, least engaged, and most likely to feel burnout, according to Qualtrics. They’re also ready to pressure their employers to change things they don’t approve of.

Leaders need to level up the communication channels, operational strategies, and employee recognition ideas to fix this trend before they lose a meaningful portion of their workforce.

Manufacturing communication FAQs

What is communication in manufacturing?

When done well, communication in the manufacturing industry creates an environment where safety procedures are understood, teams work together to understand and tackle challenges, and production runs smoothly. But it needs to be used by all departments — from design to quality control to logistics — to truly foster productivity and increase production. 

What are the 4 types of internal communication?

The four types of internal communication include:

  • Communication from leadership
  • Top-down leadership from managers to employees
  • Bottom-up communication from employees up the chain
  • Employee-to-employee communication

While those are the most common types of communication, a well-rounded communications plan will include crisis communication, DEI updates, and more.

What are some examples of internal communication?

Examples of internal communication include:

  • Email and newsletters
  • Instant messaging
  • Phone calls
  • Meetings (in person and online)
  • Intranets
  • Podcasts

Email remains the most popular form of communication, but newsletters are the only form of communication employees want more of. Consider that as you work to implement a robust communications strategy.
