Course Overview

Your effectiveness as a warehouse supervisor has a significant impact on the success of your organization. Today's competitive and difficult economic environment means that a commitment to excellence must be present not only in your own work but also in the performance of the employees in your charge. That is a monumental task when you consider some of the problems you face as a warehouse supervisor:

Are your employee turnover rates higher than in any other departments?

Do you find disparate personal goals resulting from cultural diversity in the warehouse?

Are you suffering from wildly fluctuating workloads?

Warehouse supervisors face management problems that are unique to them. Traditional "supervisory" courses for new managers just don't fill the bill.

Your real key to success lies in how well you manage the warehouse employees under your supervision. Yet, if your days go according to the norm for most Warehouse Supervisors, you probably spend most of your time dealing with problems on the warehouse floor and only a small portion of your time actually supervising your employees. As a warehouse supervisor, you need specific information about how best to control your three basic resources-labor, equipment, and space. You need to know how to manage your information processes regarding materials handling, inventory, and storage in addition to knowing how to recognize and solve your unique warehouse problems.

You'll find practical approaches to these challenges as well as useful answers to your questions in this highly-effective seminar, Management skills for warehouse supervisors. Learn how to schedule work, how to make your workers want to work, how to delegate effectively, and even how to capture the attention and respect you need from upper management.
