Pioneer Conveyor, LLC recognizes the importance in employee satisfaction to prevent high employee turnover and negative morale. Our team researched why this problem existed and how it could be fixed. We discovered wages and benefits were two main concerns; therefore, we've provided some recommendations based on our research.
Increase starting wages and pay raises
Better Parking
Dental & Eye Care
Affordable medical insurance
And more........

Recommendations
Finding dependable employees to stay long term
More likely for everyone to get along with one another
Creating a larger candidate pool using other recruitment resources such as job fairs
Unable to find dependable employees
Lack of funds for higher wages
Limited on candidates

Gives employees more incentive to work harder and take pride in their work
Positions look more appealing to potential hires.
Less employee turnover
Employees gain a sense of pride

Unable to reduce salary and incentives once given
Keeping track of employees performances
Accuracy of performance
Help boost team work
Increase efficiency
Reduce boredom
Empower employees
Higher morale
Happier and motivated employees

Some employees might find team building to be "fluffy" nonsense
Employees may not respond well to team oriented work
Keeps Management up to date on issues
Healthier work environment
