Environmental Services largest expense is labor. Administrators want to know that you are managing labor efficiently and effectively. But how much labor is efficient or effective? Unitization is a means of calculating labor requirements based on tasks or square footage, and unitization is frequently used to establish productivity standards for Environmental Services departments. 

Unitization is a critical skill for EVS leaders to learn so that you can speak the EVS productivity language with your administrator and CFO. Managing labor responsibly will set you apart as a strong leader.
