Breaking News-Service Corporation International, the Worlds Largest Funeral Corp announced today it is turning to temporary workers to an outsourcing the deal . Does this mean it will be turning it’s full time employees into temporary workers? Will the new hires only be independent contractors.
Funeral Directors. be warned! It is my experience that the employees are the last to know when Independent Contractors are involved. NYSE:SCI is making a move to independent contractors. Here come the temps!
Service Corporation International (SCI), North America’s largest single provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services, recently hired Guidant Group, a managed services and talent acquisition company, to manage its North American contingent labor program.
With more than 22,000 employees, 2,000 locations and 400 cemeteries throughout the United States and Canada, SCI employs thousands of contingent workers each year. With such a large temporary workforce, SCI recognized that creating an enterprise contingent labor management plan would help the company increase productivity and efficiency……..
The SCI contingent management program included managing 1099s, temporaries and independent contractors, and larger statement-of-work contracts (SOWs).
“SCI recognized that creating an enterprise contingent labor management plan would help the company increase productivity and efficiency……..”
This more than likely means replacing workers with Temps!=Your Funeral Guy’s opinion.
Now a press release is a hell of away to tell a work group may becoming temporary workers! One should expect No Less That This from NYSE:SCI.
The sad thing is that this can only mean poorer service for the Funeral Consumer.
