It can be hard to leave your home and family for 8+ hours a day, 40+ hours a week, which is why it’s so important to find a career where you feel comfortable and part of a positive company culture. The manufacturing industry has taken great strides in creating positive environments, fueled by hard-work, motivated employees, and positive attitudes, where all are setup for career success.

Today, let’s explore why manufacturing teams have such strong bonds and working relationships and how those relationships can drive a positive atmosphere and overall success.

Positive Work Environments Drive Success (In Every Industry)

First, let’s explore the relationship between positive work environments and business success. While we know that healthy work cultures exist in the manufacturing career, positive work environments are something all businesses across every industry should strive for. And, when you’re on the job hunt, you’ll want to make sure that your next job is a positive one.

In fact, 50% of executives say that positive [work] culture influences productivity, creativity, profitability, value, and growth rates. And, 46% of job seekers cite company culture as very important when choosing to apply to a company.

As you can clearly see, positive company culture as it relates to industry success is essential. As such, as the Northeast Advanced Manufacturing Consortium, we have made strides within our very own companies to promote a positive work culture and a safe atmosphere for all of our employees to bond and socialize within while completing their important daily tasks.

Meet Your Work Family

Manufacturing teams across the nation (especially right here in New England) share strong bonds. It’s no secret that, while filled with job growth, opportunities, and competitive salaries, manufacturing work can be challenging, engaging factory workers both mentally and physically. When you have a team of like-minded, driven individuals to rely on throughout the day, workers develop strong relationships, having each other’s back and promoting each other’s success.

The manufacturing industry also comes with a hive mind of workers seeking to do the best job that they can, driving their own success and the success of everyone else around them. Your team becomes a part of your family as you utilize cutting edge technology, equipment, and techniques to create products that are used everyday, effectively changing the world together.
