Companies can control labor costs

Statistics shows that eight out of 10 new businesses fail within the first three yearsof operation because of an uncontrollable variable, which is labor cost. How could emerging businesses keep themselves from falling on the same ground?

According to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), labor cost represents all costs incurred by the employer in the employment of labor.It covers remuneration for work performed, employer’s social security expenditures, welfare services and other miscellaneous items such as transport of workers, work clothes, bonuses, and gratuities.These expenses need to be controlled to meet optimum business results, according to Alma Luz Borja, President &CEO of Prople, Inc.

“The budget defines any company’s lifeline and eventually, its success. With that, there is a need to board the right people on the right job without shelling out huge chunks of the company’s budget,” Borja said.

Because of this, Prople Inc.—one of the world’s leading business solutions provider known for its excellent services in the areas of finance and accounting, human resource, tax and data management—offers the right manpower for the company to help them cut labor costs without compromising work efficiencies.
