Global Manufacturer Invests in Analytics to Drive Labor Optimization

Project Description

Global Manufacturer Invests in Analytics to Drive Labor Optimization


Large Global Manufacturer
Employees:  15,000
Sites:  50+


Client Goals & Challenges:

This global enterprise sought to provide more valuable and actionable insight from time and attendance data at the plant level to drive labor optimization and performance improvement.   The goal was to provide a dashboard that embedded the customers’ perspective – plant leaderships’ view – making it easy to identify trends and gaps to impact change at their location.


Workforce Insight Solution:
Analytics Consulting & Implementation

Workforce Insight was engaged as a trusted analytics partner to conduct a knowledge transfer and best practices design workshop aimed at determining the highest priority metrics, reporting and data requirements, and primary use cases.  The workshop revealed several key business needs:

  • A desire for highly visual reports
  • Dashboards to help facilitate conversations between leadership and employees
  • Overtime analytics
  • Detailed attendance reporting and trending
  • FMLA tracking
  • Quick intuitive access to critical business information

The primary focus following the discovery workshop was for Workforce Insight to develop Workforce Analytics dashboards to provide visibility to key business needs at the plant level to achieve:

  • Long term trends in workforce performance and cost
  • Administrative excellence
  • Visibility to payroll leakage
  • Visibility into inefficiencies, outliers, unnecessary or redundant processes, and non-compliance at the plant level

With every dollar saved as a result of heightened visibility through Workforce Analytics, the client has committed to reinvesting savings at the plant to drive overall plant operation improvements and increase employee satisfaction levels.
