Global manufacturing case study

Workforce analytics at a global manufacturer of children’s products.

Customer story

Using Orgvue for cost optimization

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 customer 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, analyzed, and reported operational HR data. Local HR teams had no standardized metrics. The inconsistency meant that there was no way to benchmark workforce performance efficiently and to share best practices effectively.



Only two months to collect, analyze and get get decisions from multiple sources of people data.



Nineteen percent productivity improvement identified across the global workforce.


Cost saving

Forty-two FTEs identified for reallocation to more value-added activities for the business.
