Where is your workforce?
“Local workers will always hail. Think about it. Would you rather have a worker live across the road, or 20 miles away?”
Look at your workforce. How many of these people could make it into work in less than 10 minutes? As the New Year approaches, we know we’re probably facing a late snow. If it’s anything like the past years, this weather can last until April!
Our country is often mocked for its inability to cope with the weather, but let’s not dwell on this point. The matter is, could your workplace survive if the snow cut off transport links? How many of your workers could walk to work?
As you’ll probably know, having to shut down or limit output is definitely not desirable, and so half of your workforce being unable to travel would be disastrous. What about your agency? Can they provide local staff who don’t have to travel miles? Can you agency actually make it into work themselves?
