Mitrefinch Time Allocation System (TAS)

Statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor reveal labor costs to be one of the largest expenses that North American companies must absorb. Businesses operating within the retail sector lose roughly 20 percent of their total revenue to labor costs. Those in food and hospitality sectors see 30 percent of their total revenue go towards labor costs.

The Department also estimates that for businesses in certain sectors such as construction, labor costs are second only to the costs of real estate. But you already know that, don’t you? Labor costs are indeed, a major expense.
