We provide the most cost effective methods to maximize your productivity and reduce your labor costs while improving your standards of operation.
Independent retailers report 10-15% higher labor costs than big chain competition.
Step 1: We identify your unique productivity opportunities in each store
We assess and analyze your current labor management tools and processes to discover your unique labor efficiency and retail payroll savings opportunities.
We calculate the productivity payroll percent opportunities by department and quantify those opportunities as a percent of total store sales
Create an implementation roadmap and define the cost/benefit scenario
Case Study #23 - Stock Crew Model
|Activity||Sales Per Hour Method||Vol/Fix Method|
|Grocery Stocking||128 hrs.||96 hrs.|
|Facing Aisles||56 hrs.||35 hrs.|
|Ordering||10 hrs.||6 hrs.|
|Other||20 hrs. ||16 hrs.|
|TOTAL||214 hrs.||153 hrs.|
Result: Used 61 less hours saving over $700 per week in just the grocery deptartment!
Step 2: We develop fixed and item-based volume activities around the unique needs of each department in every store.
Fixed activities are those tasks that need to happen regularly regardless of business volume related to cleaning, department presentation (facing, culling, organizing the case, etc) and administrative tasks.
Volume activities are those tasks that are dependent on sales volume related to stocking, receiving, production and customer service.
