One of the best ways to create a stable company is by ensuring you have set standard operating procedures for your supply chain/warehousing. Not only will SOP’s save you money. You will also create stability against employee turnover (essentially, creating a well oiled machine). Here are some of the benefits to implementing SOP’s:
When a process is well documented, there is no guessing game. By following the standard operation procedure mistakes are significantly reduced.
A consistent process among all team members ensures everyone is on the same page. Not only does this enhance the professionalism of an organization, but also allows a manager to easily replace or fill resources (when) and should turnover occur.
Time is money. If an internal training program is not in place, organizations typically require another employee to take time away from regular duties to onboard a new resource. A well assembled SOP could help reduce the amount of time spent onboarding and potentially allow other resources to stay on task.
Well documented SOPs enable team members to develop routines and more efficiently perform their role without having to make assumptions.
A solid SOP template can be replicated and deployed to other areas of the business to save time and money.
