The current budget situation has left state and local governments looking for cost savings, better processes and a more efficient way of doing business. With labor being the largest operational expense for governments and amounting to as much as 45 percent of operational budgets, it is not surprising that many organizations are turning to layoffs, furloughs and work-week reductions as a means of conserving budget dollars. While these are logical steps, reductions in workforces on top of already shrinking budgets are causing many governments to reevaluate current service levels for their citizens. Labor cuts do have an immediate impact on budgets, but there are other methods that control significant labor costs. Automating manual workforce processes, mitigating compliance risk and improving workforce productivity are also high-impact ways to save jobs and conserve labor costs.
Join GOVERNING on March 10th at 2pm ET/11pm PT for a one-hour Web event that will focus on what states and localities are doing to decrease budgets while maintaining a full, efficient workforce.
