JobKeeper is coming to an end and it is a great opportunity for food manufacturing and distribution businesses to review workplace processes and how to continue to grow in 2021. With JobKeeper ending, it is important businesses look for ways to improve the efficiencies.

How will your business plan for the end of JobKeeper?

There are a number of changes food manufacturers and distributors can make to adjust to the end of JobKeeper. From staff training to implementing cloud-based software, Acacia fmd can guide your business through this transition.

Implementing Cloud-based Software Systems

Cloud-based software systems are a great way to improve business performance. They provide many benefits, giving businesses long term advantages. This includes:

  • Improved security – no more hardware failures or data loss.
  • Increased productivity – gives staff the ability to work remotely.
  • Saves office space – there’s no need for bulky servers.
  • Greater accessibility – access data with any Wi-Fi connection via mobile, tablet, laptop and desktop devices.

Engage Professional Consultants

If you are a food manufacturing or distribution business, engaging a professional consultant can help to review and analyse existing business processes. Our consultants at Acacia fmd can identify problems and implement changes that are simple and cost-effective. Hiring a consultant will give your business many long-term benefits, including improved efficiencies, reducing costs and generating a greater return on investment.

Implement New Systems and Upgrading Equipment

After engaging professional consultants, it might be necessary that your business needs new production systems and equipment. This will help your business to improve its performance measures. If your systems do not give 24/7 real time information of all your businesses activities, then your business has an opportunity to improve.

New equipment can drastically improve the performance of your business and improve staff performance. With the governments depreciation allowance now set at $150,000 there are financial benefits to be gained.

Staff Training

Throughout COVID-19 lockdowns, many staff have pivoted their skill base and accepted changes in the workplace. With the end of JobKeeper, it is a great time to evaluate your staff competency and consider training in specified areas. Competition for employment is expected to increase, so spending some resources on training can improve staff performance, loyalty and morale.
