You can think of Your Labor Pool (YLP) as your favorite bucket of workers on your bench that you can tap into on an as-needed basis. Essentially, it consists of Operators who have performed work at your facility before and that you have rated highly, due to their performance.
Building a labor pool is critical, as that is what unlocks the business' ability to add flexible labor capacity, without the need to train new Operators on processes, products, etc. Once you build Your Labor Pool and begin deploying it against demand movement, you realize the full value of the model. Without a Labor Pool, you will be bringing in new, unfamiliar Operators and trying to train them up quickly, right when you don't have the time to do so.
