Labor Costs

Our labor costs are among the most competitive in the nation.  North Dakota companies report significant savings in labor costs as a result of extremely low absenteeism and turnover rates.  This adds up to huge savings for employee recruitment, replacement and re-training.  Look at these examples:                                


Company Absenteeism Turnover
Unisys (bus. svcs.)  1.6%  11%
Imation (mfg.) 1.4%  3.9%
