Companies compete with security of supply, timetables, price and quality.
All of these factors can be affected through good planning of working hours. The work is organised according to the customers’ needs and holidays are scheduled at quieter times.
It is a good idea to continuously keep the employees informed of the state of the order book so that they can consider different solutions and plan their work. Supervisors should encourage employees to give feedback and suggestions that can form a basis for decisions. Leaders that have an inclusive leadership style generally have committed employees, as every employee has the opportunity to participate in the decision-making. This is why productivity in these organisations is usually at a high level.
