While labor is one of the most significant costs of warehouse operations, it is also the most manageable. Cirrus Tech’s Labor Management enables you to either increase productivity using the workforce you have or find a new solution for cutting your costs. Employee turnover is significantly reduced because workers receive more feedback and are managed in a way that is more conducive to their needs and rewards them for a job well done.
Labor Management works by storing your database of standards for every key task. For each associate, the actual times for task completion are monitored in real time and compared to the standards. Cirrus Tech’s Labor Management suite uses modern engineering techniques to set the time standards based on distance, time, and other factors. Employees at all levels receive immediate feedback on their performance.
Labor Planning utilizes historical data to estimate future receipts, and then optimizes the balance of overtime, regular and temporary labor needed to meet demand. With accurate forecasts, managers can improve labor efficiency, reduce overtime hours and increase c customer service levels, even through seasonal fluctuations.
Successful labor management coincides with change management as well. Employees will have a clear sense of any changes or updates to the system thorough training so that their performance can continue to meet and exceed the standard that has been set.
