Between lean manufacturing processes and the constant need for continuous improvement, finding quality talent can often prove difficult for manufacturers. Outsourcing your HR and employee benefits services to a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) like GMS can help.
The Increasing Demands of HR in Manufacturing
Between an outdated reputation of unsafe work environments and the misconception by younger generations that the industry lacks competitive wages, benefits, and sophistication, manufacturers have to work hard to find and retain new, skilled talent. The role of HR in manufacturing becomes even more impactful given the rise of global competition and lower labor costs overseas. In order to be sustainable and remain competitive in the marketplace, manufacturers should seek to create an environment that:
- Attracts quality talent
- Streamlines processes
- Strengthens employee satisfaction
- Reduces skills gaps
- Improves workplace safety

The Drug Free Workplace Program was made very easy and saved the company substantial money. In addition, the human resource assessment was very helpful in getting our HR department up to date.

Our regional account manager came to our company to conduct the human resource assessment. The assessment seemed to cover virtually all areas of potential concern. I think we have an accurate starting point from which to measure our improvement in HR management.

Having GMS administer our payroll, healthcare benefits, workers' compensation, and assisting with human resources management has enabled us to focus our own resources on our core business of making quality aluminum extrusions. The contacts that I use at GMS are knowledgeable, professional, and provide accurate information in a timely manner.

In addition to our payroll services, we have utilized many of the services GMS offers from Human Resources to Workers' Compensation. With today's ever-changing laws it is difficult to keep up with the laws and regulations. As a small company, we find it a great comfort to have their expertise at our fingertips.
