Survey: Turnover Continues to Challenge Manufacturers


Turnover continues to be a significant challenge for U.S. manufacturers, according to a new survey conducted by The Management Association. Companies that employ production, maintenance, services, and trade workers reported losing one of three skilled employees. The association says businesses operating on multiple shifts have commonly used overtime as a staffing solution — and many employers offer shift differential or premium pay to incentivize working these shifts. The average second-shift premium is $1.30; third-shift premiums are an average of $1.75. 8/24/2023
