MIDDLETOWN, New York – August 22, 2011 – Benjamin Enterprises today announced the launch of a new educational series of Webinars focusing on its Workforce Solutions approach to customer engagement. The series will commence on Wednesday, September 7, 2011.

Commenting on this new educational initiative, Michelle Benjamin, President and CEO said, “When one thinks traditionally about managed labor services, the usual understanding is that one type of labor service is being provided as an augmentation to a company’s current staffing requirements.”

“In the Workforce Solutions business model, the customer outsources as many processes and functions which are not essential to its core competency. The Workforce Solutions engagement allows the customer to redirect key internal resources, achieve operational cost reduction benefits, and focus on its core competency.”

Ms. Benjamin used, as an example, a company that designs and manufactures solar-powered residential and commercial devices. It would define its core competency as product design and manufacturing; it would not see warehousing, facilities maintenance, security, and non-core manufacturing functions as core competencies. These are BE’s core competencies. The effect of bringing together partners focused on their respective competencies is to dramatically improve the operational efficiency of the primary partner – in this case, the manufacturer – and therefore increase its competitive advantage through its ability to better focus on its core competency. This is the essence of an effective Workforce Solutions engagement.

“The provision of skilled labor across a number of coordinated functions is an important – but not sole – component to the workforce solutions engagement,” added Ms. Benjamin. “Other equally important components include data gathering, reporting and knowledge management around all of the processes involved in the engagement, the provision of required equipment and consumables, effective management of the team, and a single point of responsibility for services across what traditionally were independent “silos” in the customer infrastructure.”

Ms. Benjamin concluded: “So, today marks the day when you will no longer see us talk about managed labor service. We will be talking about the more comprehensive structure of the workforce solutions offering.”

The series will commence with three specific offerings: An Overview webinar that discusses all aspects of a Workforce Solutions engagement, and two “focus” webinars explaining how Workforce Solutions improve the provision of security and facilities maintenance to the customer.

The Webinars are intended to be a continuing educational opportunity. They have been scheduled to provide the attendee with a number of choices during the business week, including early evenings. The schedule for September and October are now available online at the Company’s website, under the “Webinar” tab.
