The human elements of a warehouse are crucial to ensuring its efficiency and that means maintaining a motivated and high performing staff.
Provide sufficient training for employees to confidently do the job and make sure health and safety is prioritised. Introduce regular assessments with the opportunity to review performance and set goals to keep motivation levels high.
Reassess whether there are features of the way the warehouse that is run that could be affecting staff commitment, from poor maintenance of the space, to out of date technology.
Simply holding a regular casual meeting with your staff can help to bring to light and issues that may not be remembered in a more formal meeting, meaning any problems can be fixed before they cause frustration and a drop in morale.
