The Underestimated Role of Blue Collar Employees in the Company

It is essential to involve all employees in feedback processes to strengthen employee engagement and reduce turnover in the face of skilled labor shortages. In particular, the feedback, desires, and needs of blue-collar employees should be at the top of the priority list. This group of workers often suffers from high workloads. The lack of focus on their needs is a key reason for resignations.

Customized Feedback Solution for Blue Collar Workers

By acknowledging the importance of blue-collar workers in the feedback process, their unique perspectives can be utilized to create a more inclusive, responsive, and successful workplace.

Diversity in Focus

Integrating Blue Collar Employees for a Comprehensive Company Perspective

Blue-collar workers are often excluded from employee surveys because they do not have fixed workstations. However, giving all employees a voice has many benefits: 

Diverse perspectives

Blue-collar workers often have unique insights into daily operations and challenges, providing a comprehensive picture of the company. 

Improved engagement

Involving blue-collar workers in feedback processes demonstrates that every employee’s opinion matters, leading to higher engagement and a sense of appreciation among them. 

Compliance with legal and ethical regulations:

Ensuring that employee surveys are inclusive helps companies demonstrate their commitment to fair employment practices and supports compliance with legal and ethical regulations. 

Reduced turnover and absenteeism

Actively addressing concerns raised by blue-collar workers can contribute to a more satisfying work environment, thereby reducing turnover rates and absenteeism.

Frequently Asked Questions about Feedback for Blue Collar Workers

The term ‘Blue Collar employees’ encompasses all employees in the company who typically perform manual tasks, such as in production, manufacturing, construction, trades, mining, and similar fields. However, we use the term ‘Blue Collar’ in a broader sense to refer to all employees who do not work at a desk or have access to a PC. This includes, for example, individuals in retail, healthcare, hospitality, or other industries where work mainly takes place outside of a traditional office environment. 


Employee surveys are often very comprehensive, and not all topics are relevant to Blue Collar workers. How is this addressed? 


With our feedback software, you have the option to select only relevant topics for your Blue Collar workforce. This makes the survey shorter and more relevant for this group of employees. 


That’s not a problem. With HRinstruments, you can survey your employees even without their own email address. For existing customers, participation, for example, can be done via mobile phones or terminals provided to all employees. 


Since conducting written employee surveys involves a high organizational effort (distribution, evaluation, etc.) or challenges such as the more difficult compliance with data protection, we advise against conducting surveys with pen and paper in today’s modern and digital working world. Do you need assistance in setting up a digital feedback landscape? We are happy to advise you. 

We understand that it can sometimes be challenging to keep Blue Collar employees in the loop. However, this is essential for their participation in a company-wide employee survey. With our extensive experience, we can ensure tailored, participation-promoting communication.
