Productive is vital for integrating piecework. It has enabled Southshore Greenhouse to increase productivity by more than 30%. The increase in worker productivity not only benefits the grower but also allows the worker to earn a better wage. Although the Ontario, CA, government is introducing hikes in minimum wage, productive Southshore workers are already earning much more than minimum wage, with some earning over $18 an hour. Productive employees are enjoying the fruits of their labour with higher pay while working less hours.
With Ridder Productive’s ability to integrate a piece work system, greenhouse operations can reduce the number of employees needed per acre while increasing the amount of production. Through their hard work and dedication, employees have the ability to earn more while working fewer hours, creating optimal working conditions.
By utilizing Ridder Productive, supervisors are aware of the number of carts that each worker is picking. This information allows them to make informed decisions on piece work rates, and picking pace. Not only does Productive showcase each worker’s responsibility, but the system is also a great tool for team motivation. Employee results are broadcasted on a monitor within the facility, allowing every member of the team to view each other’s performance.
Southshore finds the Ridder Productive reporting easy to use and extremely flexible. Ridder Productive allows supervisors to view data in ways that make sense. Supervisors could view reports based on varieties, pick dates, and greenhouse facility right down to the row! Productive gives growers the accurate information they need to make the best decisions possible. Enjoy the movie about Southshore Greenhouses!
