This study brings together academic research on productivity and wellbeing in manufacturing businesses, a survey of over 100 UK manufacturing businesses and case study interviews with four firms which are working to improve the wellbeing of their employees. The report provides new sector-focussed insight into the impact of health and wellbeing on performance and productivity in manufacturing.
Published by EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation and Westfield Health and carried out by the Institute of Employment Studies the study shows that the overall mental health and wellbeing of employees is inextricably linked to motivation, engagement and performance in the workplace.
In particular, it shows that good wellbeing can bring significant benefit to those companies employing lean manufacturing processes, especially if the focus is on good mental health, resilience, autonomy and involvement at work. This can bring productivity improvements of up to 10%.
