Reducing Costs by Focusing on Non-Labor Expenses
Cost reduction is always a top priority and a common reaction is to reduce staff. This Webinar covers enabling non-labor cost reduction, both through analysis of the qualitative human/organizational factors and through a case example of the impact of a quantitative factor: non-labor benchmarking. Our speakers, Alan Goldberg and Pat Corvino from Applied Management Systems (AMS), focus on strategic sourcing strategies for supplies, purchased services, administrative discretionary spend, information technology and telecommunications.
