On average, monitoring centers report a 25-33% turnover rate each year; some have an attrition rate of over 50% per year! Training new operators costs your company $8,000 – $25,000 per person, which doesn’t even include the cost of lost productivity. The Manitou Elite Certification will benefit your company with significant cost savings by lowering operator attrition when you apply the principles of this program.


Studies show that people accomplish up to 10 times more when they have clear, defined goals. When you establish a baseline and identify clear metrics, you will see an increase in productivity. In addition, you can accurately measure how well your processes and people are performing.
The Manitou Elite Certification will help your team establish clearly defined goals with accurate metrics, so you can capitalize on the processes which yield the greatest results. This focus gives you a better insight on how your company is performing as a whole.


Recent studies show nearly 75% of employees are disengaged. Employees who are disengaged make more mistakes. In this critical industry, it is important to reduce mistakes as they can cost lives and severely damage the company’s reputation.
The Manitou Elite Certification will help your team clearly define processes and procedures, so your operators will gain confidence in the work they perform each day. This focus benefits your company by increasing operator engagement and decreasing errors.
