I believe that there must be better answers to the challenges that face our company and ourselves as it's employees than always looking with a single minded determination for ways to increase our productivity. I wonder if the focus on bigger bonus numbers is all it's believed to be in terms of profitability. There is a place for productivity, but where does it end? An hour overallowed? A half hour? 15 minutes? 1 minute? Is it always better to be faster? How about innovating our way through these changing waters with new strategies rather than using the same big spackle approach to plug the smaller leaks in the boat. We can only go so fast. We can only move through our customers business so fast. Past a point it becomes costly in terms of actually turning customers off with a "more important than you" attitude. Here's a couple of ideas to get things rolling: How about driver to driver misload meet/drop events that can be scheduled in the diad, like OCA is currently? How about promoting new or unused services to established customers with a discount incentive like the telecomm and snack industry does? I wonder if the company backed off from this latest push to squeeze a bit more blood out of the rock and instead tried to squeeze out some new innovation, if we all wouldn't sleep better, look forward to our hourly and management jobs more, like each other a little more and become a stronger company in the process?
