Optimizing Your Workforce When Automation Isn't An Option Yet
Today on the show: we’ll explore practical strategies for optimizing your workforce when automation isn’t an option yet.
Robots designed specifically for the logistics industry have come a long way in just the last few years. A new generation of smart robotics is capable of functioning autonomously, responding to constant change, and scaling up or down as needed.
Boost DC Workforce Performance and Engagement
For distribution center (or DC) operators, finding, training and retaining workers are among the greatest impediments to productivity and profitability. Historically speaking, labor costs contribute up to 65% of total operating expenses. Today, labor scarcities and rising wages are driving these costs even higher. Onboarding workers to meet performance expectations is only half the battle. Once they’re integrated into your unique DC workflows and processes, keeping them engaged and motivated to stay is equally as important.
