Why Is Cost Per Unit Better Than Traditional Hourly Labor

Posted by Bob Duron on Feb 19, 2019 10:51:00 AM

In the right environment a Cost Per Unit (CPU) model is far superior to a traditional hourly staffing model. In a CPU the provider shares in risks and rewards, and there is an economic incentive to drive performance in a way that aligns with the client. In an hourly model, it’s the opposite. The provider is paid regardless of the outcome or performance and the client bears many of the risks associated with managing the workforce.

When done well, labor management can have a profoundly positive impact on cost, quality, and productivity. Nevertheless, bringing in a third party for labor management can come with a stigma attached to it, as managers and employees may believe that bringing in an outside perspective is unnecessary, reflects badly on their performance, and even endangers their jobs. As such, this stigma can pose a significant challenge to bringing about the changes you need to improve your processes and realize your full operational potential.
