Wouldn’t it be great if you could go to Google or Facebook and type in, “how to find hard working employees,” and have the results show people who are actually hard working? I have spent most of my working career studying jobs and listening to what organizations want in their employees. I’ve never heard an organization say they didn’t want an employee who was going to work hard for them, particularly for entry-level positions in the manufacturing industry.
Manufacturing jobs are often routine and very procedural. As such, it’s very important that employees follow the procedures exactly and stay engaged and focused on the work for a long period of time. Even with job rotation and breaks, it can be difficult to stay motivated to do the same motion or task day after day. For many people, it’s challenging to maintain productivity and quality under these circumstances.
