Data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests that the employee turnover rate in the warehousing sector has been as high as 49% annually. Due to this very high attrition rate, businesses often face severe fulfillment delays, low efficiency, and increasing costs.
So, why does this happen? Entry-level warehouse jobs are still considered to be manual, repetitive, and devoid of growth. To retain employees and reduce dependency on skilled labor, organizations must implement new technologies that keep their workers engaged.
However, it is not as easy as it sounds. With such a high attrition rate, employers cannot spend too much time on training. So, they need an effective, easy-to-use solution that gives them a good ROI. Here’s where Increff Warehouse Management System comes in.
