When workforce trends don’t work


A national manufacturer was experiencing an aging workforce and a lack of internal workers to make up for forecasted sales growth. The company came to us for help in forecasting the impact of its resources.

What we did:

We sat down with the company’s team to familiarize ourselves with its concerns and the issues involved. After researching the issues, we created computer models that compared various approaches to the situation. Then, we created models that compared approaching the situation internally versus outsourcing it. We offered options to manage the future and overcome workforce issues without losing market share.


The company used our recommendations and made decisions to manage resources. This helped them manage a turnover of over 30% in their workforce two years later.
