Learn to Put Safety First in Your Warehouses with a Free Webinar

Do you have questions about keeping your employees safe and your warehouse productive in this uncertain time? Join Alpine’s Brenda Stoltz, an expert in strategic leadership, operations management and HR programs, for a WERC webinar, “Grow Your Safety Culture: How to Engage Warehouse Employees & Leaders” on Tuesday, March 31 at 2pm EST.

When it comes to safety in the warehouse, compliance is simply not enough. Rather, employees — and leadership — must be committed to not only keeping themselves safe, but also to ensuring the safety of those around them. Topics include best practices in structuring a team and techniques to gain support for, and increase interest in, safety.

Webinar participants also discover the benefits (both expected and unexpected) of a team dedicated to safety; techniques to get hourly employees to buy-in; and how to instill recommended routines that keep everyone informed and invested. Stoltz will also overview ways to establish peer-to-peer accountability — the single-most effective way to generate a safety-conscious culture.

Brenda will also share tips that leading companies are doing today to maintain operations, as well as to protect and communicate with employees and customers. She will share best practices and methods for facilities management, cleaning procedures, crisis planning and employee and customer communications.

Warehouse E-Commerce Capabilities

Warehouse E-Commerce Capabilities

Adding ecommerce capabilities to a traditional retailer’s warehouse – If your warehouse is designed for Put-to-Store, Flow through, or Batch Pick & Sort by Store strategies, new capabilities to fulfill online orders include picking eaches, processing orders with very few lines, parcel shipping, and managing tight cutoff times.

In Your Warehouse:

Consider new options to leverage your facility, like put walls, unit sorters, or separate ecommerce waves. Conduct a storage-type analysis to identify the ideal size and quantity of pick locations and evaluate distribution networks to increase next-day service and store pick up.

Weak Leaders are on the Rise!

Weak Leaders are on the Rise!

You may ask yourself why would weak warehouse leaders be on the rise?

It’s not that Strong Warehouse Leaders are not great leaders, however weak leaders are open to a different expectations.

Think about this, People love Jokes. With a joke there is a expectation and a response. Regardless if the Joke is a good or bad joke, there is the element of surprise and a response. Now let’s take that same concept to a Warehouse. With a warehouse there are expectations and responses.

Receive, Store, Pick, and Ship

On a daily basis we receive products and ship products.

In some warehouses these quantities on a daily basis may be a surprise and some maybe scared about the fluctuating volumes.

It’s those leaders that are open to new expectations and responses. Where a Strong Leader is expected to have all the answers, however with the amount of data now available, Weak leaders will take the data and look at new ways. This is why we are seeing a shift to “Weak” leaders. Typically Strong leaders already have the answer.

Don’t be afraid and follow the new ideas. This can seem to be a daunting task, but remember to rely on the power of the data and people.
