In the fast-paced world of remote and high-risk workforces, solving FIFO logistics challenges with a solid travel plan is crucial for success.

Arriving at the airport without a flight booking or experiencing room availability issues could extend from a paper-based or complicated workforce management system.

This impacts how quickly you can mobilise your workforce and as a result, influence their morale and motivation to perform at their best.

Implementing an effective workforce management system helps navigate the turbulence of travel woes and puts you on track to success.

Are happy employees more productive employees?

This age-old question has been answered.

Forbes has published the results of a Social Market Foundation report, which found that happier employees are 20% more productive in the workplace than their unhappy colleagues.

This figure might appear small, but grows larger over a working year – 20% more productivity means more tasks being actioned, finalised, and likely helping your business outperform your competition.

The importance of a good workforce management system

Picture this. A contractor arrives at the airport to find that they do not have a seat booked for their flight. Now, they have to wait several more hours for the next one.

The tired and irritated contractor then arrives at their camp only to find that there isn’t a room available.

The lack of a well-tuned plan and a robust workforce management system is clear. It’s crucial for travel managers and onboarding teams to ensure their workforce’s arrival goes smoothly to avoid disappointment and frustration.

Room bookings are not just about comfort; it directly impacts your contractor’s ability to rest and recharge today in preparation for tomorrow’s challenges. The less rested they are, the less productive they’ll be.
