Extracting Value from Data Analysis
A leading global manufacturer of children's products wanted to improve its workforce productivity by unearthing the hidden value in its data. In recent years, the client had faced challenges to maintain consistent performance and productivity across its global operations, which includes over 7500 employees, 34 locations, and 25 different countries.
Previously, the sites were managed on an individual basis, resulting in differences in how they collected, analysed, and reported operational HR data. Local HR teams had no standardised metrics. The inconsistency meant that there was no way to benchmark workforce performance efficiently and to share best practices effectively.
IMPROVING PERFORMANCE & PRODUCTIVITY THROUGH INSIGHTS
Using OrgVue, the client was able to achieve data consistency and get valuable insights within only 2 months. HR and Operations managers were able to:
Collect, clean, and create an integrated dataset
Produce reports, ranging from reporting structures to departmental productivity scores
Visualise the data to test hypotheses and identify root causes of varying productivity, such as spans of control
With the analysis and insights gained from OrgVue, the client held a number of workshops to identify and prioritise actions. OrgVue assisted local managers to allocate their resources on initiatives that will drive up performance and productivity. This led to a re-allocation of staff to more value-added activities and improved safety controls.

"There is definitely added value. It has shown what we can do with data, and we expect there to be more demand for the HR team to bring value with this kind of analytical approach."
