HR Solutions Made for Manufacturing

At TriNet, we understand the myriad challenges manufacturers face—such as maintaining compliance, minimizing safety risks and attracting a more tech-savvy labor force in an industry that’s known for high labor shortages. That’s why TriNet offers a holistic HR solution created specifically for manufacturing, with a technology platform that absorbs many time-consuming administrative tasks, so your managers can focus on running the business.

Keep Employees and Your Company Protected

Manufacturing employees are more likely to get hurt on the job than workers from nearly any other industry. This significantly increases your chances of facing an injury-related lawsuit. That’s why TriNet designed a solution to help position you to better protect your employees, your business and your bottom line through best practices guidance, worksite safety assessments and training, plus comprehensive workers’ comp coverage and claims management when the need arises.

Keep Costs Under Control

As manufacturing increases its reliance on automation and data applications, analytics are becoming even more important for optimizing workflow and reducing costs. TriNet’s robust technology platform offers pertinent data you can use to improve your HR processes, which not only helps predict overtime and workforce expenses, but also helps lower overall costs so you can offer more competitive pricing.

Real-World Example

A sports equipment manufacturer recently purchased two new pieces of machinery and could not afford another expense. However, a supervisor noticed an uptick in clocked hours for an employee who was close to hitting overtime, which would have added to their cost burdens for the month. By simply checking TriNet’s time-tracking app, the supervisor was able to identify another employee who could take over the hours without incurring any overtime expense, keeping their costs in check.

Spend More Time on Manufacturing

When you’re operating on tight timelines, any time-consuming administrative tasks such as managing worker schedules or administering payroll can impose a costly burden. But with TriNet’s full-service HR solution, you get a robust technology platform that automates many of these tasks, so you can spend less time on HR and more time on important things like monitoring production results and training employees.

Real-World Example

A Utah-based fiber optic cable manufacturer needed to expand to California to meet growing regional demand. With TriNet’s expertise, the company was able to quickly ramp up production instead of wasting valuable time decoding the nuances of California state employment regulations.
