Summary — 


Are you a CEO, Director or Owner of a manufacturing company in Somerset?  Interested in leveraging local capability, sharing best practice, and improving your business' productivity?

Join the Somerset Manufacturers Group (SMG) for this, our inaugural event. The aim is to explore with you what your business and other manufacturing companies need from the Somerset Manufacturers' Group. We expect our first members to greatly influence the shape and direction of the Somerset Manufacturers' Group and the support it offers for manufacturers with a base in the county.

Our first event also offers you an interactive workshop as we look at how to better engage employees, and how, in doing so, we could drive up productivity in our businesses by 21%.

Open to Somerset manufacturing businesses from all sectors, the workshop element will be led by SWMAS and Exelin manufacturing and productivity specialists. You will leave with a greater understanding of:

  • Factors that increase or decrease employee engagement
  • How to measure company employee engagement
  • How to use these results to reach conclusions, identify areas of concern, prioritise and follow-up with ongoing actions
  • How to recruit engaged employees and how the principles explored can be a part of the induction process
