Thrive Academy : Operator Engagement
According to a wide array of different studies, it’s been proven that one of the biggest ways to make sure that your employees remain engaged involves making sure that they have access to the types of tools they feel are necessary to do their jobs.
When you also consider the fact that engaged employees are generally happier and are more productive on average, it’s easy to see why this is one concept that is so worth paying attention to.
But for years, many manufacturing facilities and similar environments have suffered in terms of operator engagement simply because they lack the work environments – and the processes – necessary to keep those employees connected with their jobs in the first place.
This is another one of those areas that Thrive’s innovative downtime tracking solution was designed to help you correct – it’s as operator friendly as they come in the way you need to dramatically improve engagement across the board.
It doesn’t matter if the operator in question is a recent hire or has been on your line for years – in less than ten seconds, ANY operator can assign a reason code for ANY downtime event, absolutely no exceptions. Not only that, but they can also provide optional comments to assign additional context to an event – all from the shop floor.
The best part of all is that they don’t need some advanced computer science degree in order to interact with the Thrive solution. They don’t need to be trained on some fancy new piece of equipment and, in truth, they don’t need to be trained at all. All it takes to unlock the full benefit of Thrive is a device with an Internet connection – which can absolutely include the tablet, smartphone, or other mobile device that your operators are already using.
What you’re left with as a business owner is a perfect storm in the best possible way. Your operators finally have access to the tools needed to perform at peak efficiency, thus keeping them more engaged and more dialed into their roles than ever. As a business leader, you finally have access to a system that will tell you whether your lines are running, how efficiently they’re performing and more – all in real-time.
It isn’t just how you create a more efficient future for your business. It’s how you create the type of genuine competitive advantage for yourself that will serve you well for years to come. Truly, what could be more important than that?
