Plant managers take part in the recruitment process by interviewing, assigning, and training new hires. They plot the work schedule and shifts of employees according to production targets. To minimize employee attrition and turnover rate, plant managers address the concerns of team members, sort out any issues or complaints according to company policy. They also take charge of making sure that all employees follow safety rules and regulations at all times. 

 

Plant managers monitor daily, weekly, and monthly production targets. They monitor production output, quality, and target delivery according to schedule. They think of ways to streamline processes and improve efficiency without sacrificing the quality of work. Plant Managers develop ways to keep track of performance standards, metrics, and work performance. With the help of data collection and analysis, plant managers also study how to reduce waste and unnecessary costs. Similarly, plant managers distribute resources strategically.
