Get your labor management program off to the right start with a labor value assessment to quantify your potential savings and benefits.

Labor represents one of the largest cost drivers in operating a fulfillment center, manufacturing center or retail store. A properly executed labor management program implementation will provide a significant return on investment of 20 to 30 percent with a payback period ranging from 12 to 18 months.

Companies often want to immediately implement a labor management system after hearing its many benefits. While the technology itself delivers significant savings, there are other lower cost, low commitment options that can deliver immediate labor savings and productivity improvements outside of a technology investment.

enVista’s labor assessment takes into account an organization’s objectives and current workforce variables and provides an array of choices with associated time frames and projected results. We can identify and quantify improvement opportunities and eliminate waste based on eVal deliverables, including benchmarks against best in class retail and supply chain labor management programs, process observations in retail store operations and supply chain inbound and outbound processes, Lean assessment of value add vs. non-value add, and return on investment model for implementation of a retail or supply chain labor management program.

enVista Value Assessment for Labor (eVal) is a multi-dimensional performance assessment program designed to help optimize your workforce and significantly reduce annual labor costs. eVal takes your organization’s objectives and current workforce variables into account, providing an array of options with associated time frames and projected results. enVista’s eVal program is designed to identify labor and operational savings through our proven implementation methodology, focusing on people, process and technology.

A labor value assessment will give your labor executives the ability to understand:

  • Savings and value derived from the implementation of labor management programs in a fulfillment, manufacturing or retail environment
  • Projected ROI from a labor management implementation
  • Project timeline and steps necessary to attain the identified value gained
  • Internal and external resources required to execute a labor management implementation
  • Long-term requirements for maintaining a properly executed labor management implementation

enVista engages prospective clients in the eVal process by conducting a detailed walk through of the existing people, processes and technology currently in place. We will review facility production and labor cost data and provide an estimated savings opportunity range based on the facility, market and tasks and then benchmark against our extensive database of similar processes. We then will prepare an executive overview and detailed summary of findings that can be used as a basis for capital and/or expense requests required for internal approval.
