Manufacturing industry

Employee benefit programs tailored specifically to your manufacturing industry needs.

Manufacturing success

With nearly 500 manufacturing clients in the US, we understand the issues employers are facing in the industry.

Employee exhaustion is perceived as one of the biggest obstacles to transformation in 2024. Compared to other sectors, manufacturing employees are less likely to feel their company is genuinely interested in employee wellbeing, and 38% report feeling exhausted on a typical work day. *Inside Employees’ Minds Survey.

84% of companies are taking steps to maximize workforce energy this year. 67% are focused on how their benefits offerings can better support employee attraction, retention and engagement this year – *Global Talent Trends 2023.

Supply chain challenges and inflation continue to wreak havoc on margins, creating additional pressure on benefit cost for many employers. Rising costs are also presenting a challenge for many employees, with 47% of manufacturing employees reporting reducing discretionary spending due to economic concerns.
