The current staff turnover rate in the logistics industry is 26%, are you doing everything you can to keep yours to a minimum??
As one of the most prominent recruitment consultancies in the logistics and supply chain sector, we see capable, ambitious people looking for their next opportunity every day – and not always for the reasons you may expect. In fact – our analysis shows us that almost 75% of managers move on because of lack of development opportunities, rather than financial reward or career progression.
These people relish the challenges their jobs give them, but if they aren’t being invested in and encouraged to grow, businesses risk losing good people.
To deliver the customer propositions needed to stay competitive, there’s a new battle for talent in the sector, businesses can’t afford to let strong people walk out of the door if increasing demands are to be met – staff must be developed in order to retain them.
In our experience, the most effective place to start is your warehouse team leaders/supervisors/first line management. The people in these roles need to engage operational colleagues, drive performance and improve service levels; a structured development programme can significantly assist them in this task.
