The difference between the expected and actual output or yield of a production process is referred to as yield variance. This is an important metric for HR professionals who plan and manage employees' workforces, especially in manufacturing and agriculture, where output is closely linked to labour productivity.
When there is a difference between the expected and actual yield, HR professionals need to figure out what's wrong and fix it. This could mean adjusting the workforce to make sure that the right amount of people is working there, giving employees more training or support, or changing processes to be more efficient and less wasteful. HR professionals can assist businesses in achieving optimal production output and minimizing costs associated with underutilized labour or waste by closely monitoring yield variance.
