Despite rising energy costs, nationwide skills shortage and economic inflation, UK manufacturers are making proactive business decisions that will help them shape the future.
They’re leading, rather than waiting to be led – finding new ways to add value and boost productivity while driving out cost and carbon to create a real competitive advantage.
Many organisations are already demonstrating innovative thinking, adaptability and leadership. Those manufacturers are breaking new ground by exploring new ways to stand out in their market, while also focusing on keeping costs low. Funding upskilling and retraining programmes for staff, helping them develop new skills and add value to their sector. Using energy efficiency measures, like the adoption of green technology, as a means of reducing expenditure across the value chain. And staying on top of working capital despite the challenge of supply chains lengthening.
Now is the time to build on what’s already being done. Productivity and resilience is stronger amongst organisations who are intensely focused on investing in the right areas. Leaders in the manufacturing sector will be those that want to learn from others, with a culture of open source management being a key focal point. As well as those who are keen to develop innovative approaches to solving immediate challenges, while not losing sight of long-term objectives.
Winning manufacturers are recognising ESG and decarbonisation as opportunities to create a real competitive advantage — and they are investing in their organisation in a way that shapes the industry for the better.
