The Top 3 Shop Floor Control Labor Concerns

What keeps you up at night?

· Shop Floor,Labor Compliance,Payroll,Efficiency,Manufacturing

In talking to several companies, I found that there was a common thread when discussing labor concerns for manufacturers.

1. Finding and keeping qualified, skilled and dependable workers. In a shrinking employment pool, this is the most discussed topic of all. Company owners and management are asking, how can I keep and reward my top, trained, skilled, reliable performers?

2. Increasing productivity

Several company presidents are charged to grow the company’s revenues and increase orders. They’ve already invested in the best equipment. How can they improve plant efficiency/productivity?

3. Controlling labor cost

You cannot continue paying by the hour, or paying by the hour with a bonus. Controlling labor cost means measuring, reporting, collecting data at the factory floor. How can one control cost if it isn’t measured?
