As part of our Workforce Trends Report Series, this addendum highlights key findings and implications based on 509 manufacturing organizations that participated in our 2023 Benefits Strategy & Benchmarking Survey.

The manufacturing industry is continuously evolving. And in the spirit of embracing change for the better, employers are taking a hard look at their total rewards and prioritizing employee wellbeing.

Manufacturers today aren't only focused on competitive pay and benefits, but also on creating a culture where people feel valued as individuals. Through a broad emphasis on wellbeing, manufacturers can meet the unique needs of all employees with the right workplace policies and total rewards strategies in place.
