Keep production up by avoiding common management mistakes
from Sheilamary Koch
Seasonal warehouse work by nature draws quite a wide demographic — individuals in transition, college students, teachers, immigrants, rehabilitated offenders, retirees and young people new to the world of work as well those who travel between warehouses as a career. During summer break, I joined one such group of humanity. Production and safety are utmost concerns in any warehouse or plant — so managing workers to be highly effective while remaining uninjured tops the list of leadership objectives. While seemingly straightforward, it doesn’t necessarily prove simple in practice, especially when the temporary labor force comprises people with diverse backgrounds and personalities.
