Key Role Support Program

“The global pandemic has dramatically disrupted our workforce. We need to fill critical roles if key personnel need to be at home dealing with this public health emergency.”

Business Challenge

In the normal course of business, companies periodically experience attrition of key Frontline Leadership personnel. The recent Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and its ongoing workforce disruption have significantly increased the likelihood of this occurring in your facility. Moreover, these times require a higher level of performance from your front-line leaders due to fluctuations in customer demand, significant changes to product mix, additional requirements for deep cleaning of facilities and equipment, “distancing,” rotating shifts, or time gaps between shifts, fewer hours available for production, etc.


The POWERS Solution

POWERS has implemented the Key Role Support Program; a low-cost, high-value solution that enables your organization to deploy one or more industry trained front-line leadership (FLL) strategists – to fill this management gap. Our POWERS FLL Strategists have extensive real-world production management and executive leadership experience; enabling their ability to quickly understand, adapt, and positively impact your business operation – at the front-line. Our unique solution exceeds any measure of temporary leadership oversight provided by staffing agencies, head-hunters, and consultative service providers.

Don’t allow mission-critical gaps in leadership coverage to continue to negatively impact your Productivity, Quality, Safety, and Efficiency. The Key Role Support Program will fulfill this void while contributing to upgrades of your production processes, sharing of best practices with other key leaders within your operation, assisting in the hiring of the long-term replacements for that position, and training the new leaders to manage the assigned area of business to its full potential capacity.
