Absenteeism And The Cure For This Chronic Problem

Are you focused on reducing absenteeism? The unscheduled absenteeism rate in the U.S. hourly workforce is approximately 9%; almost one in ten workers is absent when he or she should be at work. Unscheduled absenteeism is a chronic problem for U.S. employers, conservatively costing $3,600 per hourly employee per year, and $2,650 per salaried employee per year.

A company of 5,000 hourly employees has the potential to reduce costs by over $7.9 million per year, or 3.2% of total payroll. Unscheduled absenteeism often occurs from unexpected sickness. The best way to avoid this is to take all precautionary measures to disinfect your hands and workspace.

WEISS BROS. NEWS
 
THIS MONTH'S FEATURED CLIENT
 Kris Shepardson, Housekeeping Manager from American Public University System

Why do you choose to partner with Weiss Bros.? 
Honestly, we had been dissatisfied with the current company we had been using for quite some time. I was really amazed at what was available from Weiss Bros. compared to what we were currently receiving. I feel that our rep Scott cares about APUS, and making sure we have what we need. Bringing us up several levels from where we were. Also, Weiss Bros. is committed to making sure we would be saving money, as well as receiving great products and incredible customer service! They have worked with me product by product to find comparable/better items that actually came in less expensive! The time they spent with me showed that they really are a company that is more than the bottom line. Every single person we’ve encountered with Weiss Bros. from the sales, delivery, maintenance, education, office personnel are all that way. What a great company, to me Weiss Bros. represents true customer service.
 
For what supplies and services do you depend on Weiss Bros.? 
We depend on the paper products, bags and chemicals. Everything we purchase from Weiss Bros. is vital! For services, we depend on the timely, accurate delivery of our products on a weekly basis. And lastly, the maintenance and repair of our floor equipment.   
 
What were some of your greatest challenges and frustrations before partnering with Weiss Bros.?  Inaccurate orders, delayed orders (MAJOR backorders, with no communication.) Actually lack of communication was one of the greatest frustrations we had. We discovered that there were other products available but were never told about them, nor did they offer to find ways to cut costs. What we had was simply an order and delivery system. Just prior to switching, the previous company began to try and work harder to get things straightened out, but at that point we were already looking elsewhere.
 
Since the partnership began, what are some of the positive impacts it has made on your business?
Our interactions with Weiss has been very positive. I feel we have gained new friends. We are saving money, and the classes that have been offered to our team are extremely valuable! They come to us! This is so helpful, so that everyone can participate at the same time. Scott has worked very hard to raise the bar as far as what we use to clean, procedures and equipment. I’m extremely impressed. Whenever we have a bump in the road or ANY issues at all, someone from Weiss corrects it very quickly. We all make mistakes, but the way they are dealt shows great professionalism on their part.
