Honda to send office workers to collect cars

To support its U.S. plant amid the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent job shortages, the Japanese automaker has taken a plunge. Honda is about to move some of its office staff to work positions.

Honda will support its assembly plant in Maryville, USA. According to the WOSU Public Media report, the brand’s management will transfer some office workers to new positions directly on the assembly line of the plant.

The company also confirmed this information to the journalists of the Motor1.com portal. The official response reported that due to the coronavirus pandemic, the company faced a temporary staffing shortage. To support its manufacturing needs, Honda will send workers to the plant who are not normally in production. These are specialists responsible for purchasing, accounting, as well as development and research. For the Japanese, this is nothing new: the company has taken similar steps in the past.

One of the anonymous employees, referred to by a foreign publication, said that at first Honda was looking for volunteers in its office ranks, but there were few people willing to work at the plant. After that, the translation process became mandatory.

Recall that a fairly large company Honda in Maryville produces a number of Honda and Acura models, including the Accord and CR-V, as well as the Acura TLX and ILX.
