We have the pulse on current workforce development in the United Kingdom


Is U.K. manufacturing in decline? While there have been major changes in the overall manufacturing environment, industry statistics show an impressive increase in non-traditional manufacturing, particularly in the small and medium sized business sector. And much of the work still requires real living human beings, not just robots.


Current trends favour the small and medium sized manufacturing model. This may be due to the fact that these companies are often more innovative and disruptive. They are flexible enough to make changes easily, and their rapid time to market gives them a huge advantage over their larger, slower competitors.


Commit to the best practices


Do you think that only large manufacturers can afford to implement best practices? Think again.


Regardless of the size of your plant or organization, implementing best practices in your operation can lead to dramatic improvements. Creating a system around industry and business best practices helps you maintain your strategic advantage and maintain or improve your market position. For manufacturing, this means finding better ways to reduce costs and improve production by minimizing downtime. Ultimately, best practices allow you to focus on growing your business, rather than reactively solving problems.


Most workers want to feel like they are part of a team they are committed to, not just hourly employees going through the motions. Implementing Sophie and David’s tips can help you improve employee morale and longevity. It is essential to use a reliable labour supplier who knows how to develop and maintain a consistent management approach. This is where you really start to see day-to-day productivity gains.
