How to Reduce your Labor Costs

Why Should You Attend

Rising all-in labor costs are one of the most significant challenges facing employers today. Labor cost increases are primarily attributable to wage and healthcare cost inflation. This webinar represents Part 1 of a two-part series that focuses on opportunities to reduce and/or mitigate rising all-in labor costs. This module highlights two specific cost reduction opportunities. Modifications to an organization’s compensation structure or to its workforce composition have the potential to significantly mitigate rising labor costs over time. In fact, changes to a company’s workforce composition can be one of the most “union-friendly” cost reduction opportunities available. This webinar illustrates numerous practical alternatives for organizations to consider in addressing rising all-in labor costs.
Part 2 of the series focuses primarily on cost reduction opportunities relative to health care and other benefit costs.
