The example below shows a $69K or 38% profit improvement achieved with a 5% increase in labour utilisation i.e. from 75% to 80%. If you’re paying people 40 hours per week and charging 30 hours on jobs… if you can get an extra 2 hours per person per week this results in extra profit.
Conversely… The example below shows a 5% drop in both labour utilisation and recovery % of labour, results in a $134K profit reduction. ‘Recovery % of labour’ being the number of hours billed of all hours worked on jobs/projects.
