Seminar: Workforce Planning in Manufacturing
Date: Thursday 26th April
Location: Manchester
Helping you create and maintain cost efficient shift patterns

This event will focus on how to design, implement and manage shift patterns within a manufacturing environment and will be invaluable for anyone looking to:

  • Reduce labour costs, boost productivity, eliminate overtime and minimise reliance on agency workers.
  • Create more flexible resourcing models that respond to demand volatility, seasonality and help you remain competitive in uncertain times.
  • Create appealing and flexible patterns for diverse demographics that support recruitment and retention and strengthen employer brand.
  • Improve employee work-life balance and reduce health & safety risks such as long-hours working and associated fatigue-related issues
  • Maintain compliance with Working Time regulations, legislation such as the National Living Wage, ethical supplier audits and the handling of employee data under GDPR rules.
  • Use Annualised Hours and Demand-Led Rostering systems to replace ‘precarious’ forms of employment (e.g. zero hour contracts) with full-time secure roles.
  • Create simplified, modernised systems and processes to reduce administration and minimise risks.

The Agenda:

The Seminar will provide delegates with an overview of approaches that support effective shift design and management; such as Demand-Led Rostering, Lean Employee Resourcing and Annualised Hours.

Our consultants will show how these systems can be used to effectively manage demand variability, such as seasonality or supply exceptions, such as holiday, absence or shut-downs.

The detail will be brought to life through engaging case studies on real world implementations from manufacturing organisations.

Other sessions will include practical exercises on shift pattern planning and how technology can be used to support the process.
