Giving all employees the ability to complete any task in the workplace means they are more productive and flexible in their roles.
In a workplace where everyone can handle heavy lifting or difficult manoeuvring of goods, employees are equal, empowered, and productive. Workforce flexibility, allowing employees to rotate between work stations, clearly helps increase productivity. Swedish innovation company TAWI develop and manufacture lifting equipment that enables everyone to lift, facilitating workforce diversity and flexibility, which results in increased productivity.
Lift easy with user-friendly equipment
TAWI lifters are designed to facilitate ergonomic and efficient lifting, without slowing down the process. The equipment is simple to use, with training taking very little time. User-friendly equipment further facilitates workforce flexibility, making it easy for employees to switch from one work station to another. The lifters make manual handling of goods effortless, saving workers’ energy and keeping them alert and efficient for longer.
If your production line depends on one person to lift those heavy bags of ingredients to the mixer, or load new rolls onto the packing machine you can become reliant on one person. To increase productivity, you need to give your employees the tools to allow everyone to complete the same tasks.
Workforce flexibility means that anyone can help where required and productivity is not dependent on specific individuals. Implementing equipment for safe and easy lifting will allows the employment of a more diverse workforce, because no matter how large or small, everyone can lift.
Increase productivity through diversity and flexibility
A diverse workforce means that you have different types of people, all contributing with different types of experiences and skills. Research shows that diversity can boost employee engagement, job satisfaction, and performance. A diverse workforce is likely to be better at problem solving compared to a more homogenous group, a competitive advantage with potentially great impact.
