How may a food and beverage industry employer boost employee productivity?

Author: Marta Moakley, XpertHR Legal Editor

A food and beverage employer should focus its efforts on recruiting and retaining highly engaged employees. These employees are motivated to perform their jobs to the best of their ability - resulting in valued individual contributions, especially in plants, warehouses or on assembly lines. Highly-engaged employees are also less likely to take part in undesirable workplace behaviors (e.g., excessive absenteeism) that may decrease overall productivity.

Employee engagement fosters employee retention and organizational growth. A food and beverage employer may wish to review performance management, career development and corporate communications policies and procedures to ensure these promote overall business goals.
