By 2025, the workforce management market will be worth $9.3 billion and with the increase of e-commerce, the number of people employed by this sector – often on a shift basis in warehouse and distribution centres – is set to increase. In the United Kingdom (UK) alone, a yearly average of 188 thousand individuals were employed by warehouse and storage facilities in the UK with this number growing each year.
Staff management of large workforces can cause logistical headaches for employers, and can be made more difficult when needing to fulfil shifts with workers who have the right skillset or training for a particular job. This is where workforce management (WFM) software can offer a solution and even improve efficiencies. The right WFM software can improve productivity, reduce costs by preventing more resources being spent than necessary and free up management time, as well as increase engagement with shift workers by giving them ownership and access to their work schedule and pay through a mobile app.
“We’re delighted to welcome so many new team members to the Sirenum family. Effective workforce management can have a transformative impact on companies thanks to its ability to streamline scheduling, compliance, and monitoring, and provide analytics on utilisation rates and more.” Said Benjamin Rubin, CEO and founder of Sirenum.
“Our team’s unrivalled knowledge of workforce management processes has also shaped the platform from the start to enable us to create a best in breed solution. And it’s this competitive edge and our sector agnostic approach, which is why we’re in a fortunate position to expand our team and provide opportunities to those who may have recently faced redundancy. Although I know our HR department and the rest of the team have made our new recruits feel welcome, I do still look forward to the day that the entire company will be able to celebrate our growth and future together.”
