Is "do more with less" ruining your job
It seems like every company is trying to implement the "do more with less" strategy, me for example, I work as a manufactures rep, the factories we rep are working with fewer people, and carrying less inventory, the distributors that buy from the factories, are working with fewer people and carrying less inventory, we are the in between people just plain working with less people. All three stages of the chain are trying to push more onto the other two stages, and a lot of work that original got handled, is now left undone. With no one carrying much inventory, the work load of expediting orders, and constant rechecking order status is adding to the already now over loaded work load.
Sorry to rant about my job, but is this the same in other fields. What's yours, service, sales, medical, legal?
