3 Ways Warehouse Staff Training Profits Everyone
One of the more important aspects of warehouse management is training your staff to perform their jobs efficiently. After all, your staff is the way the job actually gets done. No amount of software, hardware, or automation will replace all the human components of a warehouse, even when the staff size can be reduced to a minimum.
Warehouse staff training has at least three major benefits:
- Staff that sees how they fit into the bigger picture also understand the importance of doing their job well. In training, explain the layout of the warehouse and the way the inventory is tracked through the process. The ChainDrive Warehouse Management System is helpful here, because along with everything else it does, you can get a pivot table graphical representation of your layout, making it easy to demonstrate your process and show where the human element fits in.
- Staff that knows where stuff is can do their job. It should be easy to find tools and replacement supplies for operation procedures. Safety equipment, cleaning supplies, etc. should be easy to access and use. Using the ChainDrive WMS, staff can see real-time inventory status if they know how to use the component that ties to their position. Every minute a picker is wandering around comparing SKUs to a scribbled note on an illegible form is money trickling down the drain. Lose the paper: use the device and software that keeps your staff relevant.
- Staff that is accountable will not waste time. Along with bin management and the rest, the ChainDrive WMS provides scheduling and productivity analysis. If your staff understand how they are assessed, they will see how their bonuses tie in to everybody’s success.
