Employee Productivity Requires More Than A Formula
How do you decide to evaluate employee productivity?
The traditional “sales divided by hours” formula doesn’t give a true picture of the value an employee provides. There needs to be more data included in the calculations, like the increased information available with ChainDrive’s Operations Management Software. Since everything is integrated, the ability to access the centralized database provides any set of data needed for accurate analysis, including both historic and real-time information. Multi-level comparative sales reports that include new or closed stores, weather issues, and other data allow for optimal assessment.
Productivity Is Best Measured In Perspective
While it is true that employees in the same store should be considered to have similar working conditions, the employee productivity from store to store may well vary beyond their control. Stores in a poor location, or affected by outside factors that limit traffic, are naturally going to be less productive than stores in good locations with high traffic. Utilizing technology to provide the bigger picture will give perspective and insight into the reasons there may be problems.
Identifying possible problems that affect employee productivity is a great way to bring the entire workforce onto the same team by asking for suggestions on overcoming those problems. When everyone is on the same side, working together to reach a common goal, attitudes are much more positive.
