Optimizing your staffing to make the most of your investment!
Workforce Management (WFM) is an integrated set of processes Three Star Global uses to optimize the productivity of its temporary associates by individual, departmental, and entity-wide levels. In a Manufacturing, Wholesale, and Distribution environment, WFM involves matching associates skills to specific tasks over time, quantifying the amount and types of labor needed to accomplish particular jobs on a day-to-day or hour-to-hour basis.
Overstaffing or understaffing at any level, even for short periods, should be avoided because such conditions can cut into a company’s profitability, reduce its overall productivity, frustrate its employees, and antagonize the clients and customers. Aspects of a comprehensive WFM program, which operates within the broader framework of human resource management include:
- Time and attendance tracking
- Employee scheduling
- Demand prediction
- Payroll administration
- Benefits administration
- Training programs and assignments
- Performance monitoring
- Vacation and leave planning
- Career planning
