Global retailer customer story

A global retailer uses activity analysis to develop a scalable model for their stores

Customer story

Using Orgvue for activity analysis

As the business had rapidly scaled, they lacked data on how people in the retail stores were spending time. There was a need to ensure the right time was being spend on the right work.

Using Orgvue’s activity analysis survey, they assessed 166 employees in North America, and conducted an analysis of time spent on activities by role and by store. They uncovered that 66% of the cost was spent on admin work, which was 50% more than planned. They then identified priority areas for process optimization, and defined how each role should look like in line with an optimal store model.
