Different work groups have different motivated-driven factors. But they share the common basic needs of human being as Maslow's hierarchy of needs.

Here are 5 elements need improving to boost blue collar worker engagement:

- Working conditions

Working conditions include working facilities, time, rest, schedule, health and safety at workplace. Nobody wants to stay to work for a long time in bad working conditions, right?

- Pay

Fair wages will ensure quality of life for workers. In this case, labor union plays an important role in negotiating good pay and benefits for blue collar workers.

We often think that trade workers earn less money than office workers, but it's not true. Many blue collar jobs such as welders, oil riggers, and construction workers can get up to six-figure salary (USD) per years.

- Job security

As the rise of high technology machinery and automation, blue collar workers face the more fierce competition in labor market. The most challenge for them is the limited repetitive skills they have. For instance, an operator working in the same machine in 5 years will be dependent in it because he has no idea about other kinds of equipment or the next stages in the production.

When having skilled workers, employers should sign agreements on assigning new tasks and offering more on-the-job training to make them feel committed to the company.

- Recognition

As white collar, blue collar employees will feel more engaged when their contributions are recognized. Along with monthly and yearly rewards, values-based recognition is needed to make blue collar workers align with the organization's goals and success.

- Communication

The last but not least important thing is communication. Managers should talk to blue collar workers in a straight and transparent manner to make sure all of them understand clearly. Be sure white collar employees and you respect them as peers, not lower class people. As a leader, you should understand every individual to help them integrate with the team and boost their potentials. Besides enhancing communication among workers, remember to take feedback from them regularly. This action will help you build trust and handle work-related issues timely and effectively. When blue collar workers have voice in their teams, they will be more motivated and engaged.
