The Simplified Gainsharing Training Handouts were developed for logistics organizations implementing the Simplified Gainsharing approach to improved warehouse productivity.

Used in conjunction with your team meetings, supervisor training and plan documentation, the Simplified Gainsharing Training Handouts ensure strong participation from the start as workers’ fears are laid to rest and a new world of opportunity is opened for them.

What is Simplified Gainsharing?

The Simplified Gainsharing program as described in Warehouse Productivity offers significant benefits for companies and their warehouse workers.

The company will see increased productivity and profitability in the warehouse, while blue-collar workers will benefit from increased hourly wages, additional time off and greater job satisfaction.

But what looks like a win-win program to management can look more like a threat to job security and unreasonable expectations to many hourly workers.

It’s your job in managing the program to show workers that Simplified Gainsharing will not hurt them and to get their buy-in early in the program.

How do the training handouts help?

To help you explain the program and its benefits, the creators of Simplified Gainsharing, Pat Kelley and Ron Hounsell, have written a brief 4-page handout for everyone on your team.

Written in the authors’ straightforward, no-nonsense style, the handouts speak directly to hourly workers and address their concerns in an honest and forthright manner.

The material is broken down into three easy-to-read sections:

Section 1. Kelley and Hounsell introduce themselves as the authors of the handout and creators of the Simplified Gainsharing program. They then provide a clear, concise description of the program and how it works. Their closing statement speaks directly to readers:

“The bottom line is you have it in your hands to make great changes in your work life, and this could even lead to making great changes for your family. And isn’t that why we’re all working?”

Section 2. In this section workers share their real-world experiences with Simplified Gainsharing. You’ll hear from Fred, who was frustrated by working harder but making the same money as everyone else. You’ll hear from Shawn, who’s glad he signed up early and is putting his gainshares toward a new pick-up truck. And you’ll hear from co-workers Denise and Annie, who find the program helps fight the boredom they faced each day. Each of the stories in this section address workers real concerns and show how they have benefited from Simplified Gainsharing.

Section 3. To close the handout, the authors answer some very pointed questions about why workers should participate in the Simplified Gainsharing program and address workers’ fears about rising standards.

The handouts are provided in packages of ten so that you’ll have a copy for everyone in the warehouse and everyone benefits from its powerful message.
