Core Practice Partners Creates 12 Hour Shift Scheduling Practice

The creation of 12 Hour Shift Schedules will now have a specialized division at Core Practice Partners, becoming the first firm to formally recognize the need.

New York, NY, May 04, 2008 --( Core Practice Partners announced today that they have created a separate division of their firm to handle 12 hour shift schedules. 12 hour shift schedules have tremendous success in some environments, but fail in others. The manufacturing environment can be the same, the demographic can be the same, and the plants can even be across the street from each other, but one may find success with 12 hour shifts while the other fails. Why? Demographics are important as is the type of work environment whether it is a call center, manufacturing plant, mine, or distribution facility. What is more important is the need to get the schedule rotation right (day on and day off pattern or night and day shift rotation or both) and to follow strict change management procedures. Employees need to be involved in the process. The combination of expertise and experience at Core Practice Partners has allowed them to consistently provide successful operations management consulting to Fortune 500 companies around the globe. 12 hour shifts can save companies a lot of money, but if they don't know how to design implement the right solutions, cost savings become stranded.

This announcement marks the first time a consulting firm has created a single practice focusing on 12 hour shifts.
