That is according to a new report by EEF – the manufacturers' organisation, which shows that 78 per cent of manufacturers believe that cooperative relationships with their workforce are helping them to achieve greater flexibility.
However, almost half of these companies fear that frequent changes in regulation will make it increasingly difficult for them to achieve future flexibility, which is something the government needs to address, said EEF director of policy Steve Radley.
"Manufacturers tell us that they achieve the flexibility that they and their employees are seeking by working increasingly closely with them. Supporting flexibility must be a key part of the government's growth strategy," he added.
Recent figures issued by XpertHR revealed that the median pay reward for those in the manufacturing industry in the three months to June was higher than in other sectors, with workers receiving a three per cent increase.
