I interviewed Tom Crowe, CIO at PL Developments, for my blog series on The Growing IT Labor Shortage. Tom provided his perspective on the challenges of hiring and retaing the best talent in today's market. For the wholesale/distribution industry, finding and keeping good labor is a challenge across the board.
From Banker's piece:
'Including finance in this process is a sign of a maturity – S&OP is morphing into Integrated Business Planning. However, giving HR a seat at the table is rare. PL Developments chose to do this because as their business scales up and down, they need to balance hiring new hourly workers with turnover. As a highly regulated industry, labor is a key constraint. FDA regulations lead to long training cycles, it takes them 60 days to train people and put them on the line."
