Clearwater, Fla. (Oct. 29, 2013) – As part of the “Datex Presents” educational series for supply chain professionals, the StoneCross Group will present a webinar on performance based labor in the supply chain. The brief 30-minute webinar entitled, “The 9 Potential Value Leaks of Performance-Based Labor” will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 5th at 2 p.m. EDT. Registration for the free event will be available up until the start of the webinar.
As the cost of labor typically constitutes approximately 65% of most warehouse facilities’ operating budgets, it is critical that companies derive the most value for their labor dollar. A new labor model is gaining traction in the supply chain industry. The new performance based labor model is simple but highly effective: workers are sourced based on labor output (performance) rather than merely on the hours worked. Using a pay for performance business model, warehouse operators can establish incentive pay programs based upon how workers perform against standards and couple this with quality and safety performance measurements.
To ensure that businesses derive maximum value, it is critical that performance based labor programs be deployed effectively. During this webinar, attendees will learn what performance based labor is, its potential value to warehouse operations and how this differs from traditional labor outsourcing models including temporary workforce and permanent workforce models. In addition, the presentation will review key ways that performance based labor programs can generate value in operations as well as potential “value leaks”.
