Critical mass is defined as the minimum amount of something required to start or maintain a venture. The minimum amount! Hmm… let’s think about that for a moment:

Within business, we never want to have just the minimum amount of money to pay our bills. Nor do we want to provide our customers with the minimum amount of customer service. We don’t work this hard as to only have or provide the minimum.

We as business owners know what it takes to run a business. Business owners have that entrepreneurial spirit. We never want to “settle.” We want to be the best that we can be, it’s in our blood. We are constantly trying to learn more to move forward; books, coaching, or podcasts, it doesn’t matter what form the knowledge comes; we crave it. Every minute of every day we strive to be moving forward. There is no empty space for us; we fill it with knowledge and growth.

Why is it that when it comes to one of the most important aspects of our business we play a guessing game when it’s definitely not in our nature to accept anything less than the best!

So What is Burdened Labor Costing (BLC) & How Does it Affect Your Business?

Let me give you a better understanding of what it really is and why you should spend so much of your time and effort on it.

BLC is the sum of your direct labor, taxes, benefits, vehicle costs (if applicable) and an adjusted percentage of your indirect labor and overhead costs associated with a specific department and individual. Or simply put, the sum of the costs associated with an employee and their vehicle (if applicable) per hour. Or even more simply put – what does that employee cost you every hour of every day?

We often get asked why we call it Burdened Labor versesLoaded labor. The reason is we have found that when the term loaded labor is used, it is in reference to just some of the costs associated with having an employee – and even those costs vary. Loaded labor doesn’t usually include overhead, indirect labor and all expenses required. It usually provides a quick view of the employees pay rate along with some taxes and benefits.
