Challenges and solutions for HR departments in the manufacturing industry


In this guide, we not only analyse the different ways to respond to challenges in the manufacturing industry, but also focus on retention opportunities, employee wellbeing and workplace hazards. We offer solutions that are not only suitable for HR managers in this sector. If you would like to learn more about this topic, please read our other articles on the subject:




Management of retirements and offboardings


The ageing of the population in Europe has reached an all-time high. In 2021, more than one fifth (20.8%) of the EU population was aged 65 and over. This fact means that the manufacturing industry is facing a generational change in its structures. There is a need to adequately manage both the retirement of those who retire and the recruitment of those who replace them.


Ageing in Europe



Tapping into new occupational groups


As the number of employed people in Europe, as well as in many other parts of the Western world, is increasingly declining, it is all the more important to win over previously underrepresented groups for one's own company.  These groups include women, people without degrees or work experience, and career changers. The focus should be primarily on skills that are important for the future and less on previous work experience. This is especially true for technical skills.


Support through HR software


To face these challenges you should get support for your HR department through technology. Tools like Kenjo's HR software help HR departments in the manufacturing industry to focus on the new tasks.
