Emerging stronger: adapting to new realities in manufacturing

6th July 2020 | 3:00pm - 4:30pm BST
What is the ‘next normal’ for operational agility and the workforce?

Join Kronos and a group of manufacturing peers to discuss emerging operational and workforce challenges, share how you are adapting your policies and processes in the current climate, and how you are preparing to support, deploy and protect workers in a post-pandemic world.

The current climate has hit the manufacturing industry in a completely unprecedented way. While all manufacturers are now operating in an environment of economic uncertainty and disruption, the extent to which any individual manufacturer is impacted by the COVID-19 crisis varies greatly. In medical, food and other essential goods, many are ramping up production. Whereas others are shutting down plants to prevent or respond to COVID-19 infections.

Regardless of the various business impacts experienced due to the pandemic, it’s clear all manufacturing organisations face a common challenge – how to quickly adapt their operational practices to address the needs of the workforce in the “new normal”.

With crisis comes great opportunity and the chance to consider what business adaptations could propel the workforce forward. So, how could you improve the visibility of your staff? How could you better deploy employees and resource to cope with ever changing consumer demand? And how can an enhanced emphasis on employee safety and well-being ease the transition of bringing people back to work?

Discussion Topics

How has your business been impacted by the pandemic?
What operational changes have you had to put in place in response?
What challenges have you uncovered regarding managing your workforce during this time?
