Productivity Consulting

Managing your workforce is often one of the biggest costs for hospitality or retail businesses. Therefore, it is critical to leverage your most important assets in the right way.

Our productivity consultants will assist your business to understand your operating model and core values — there is no “one size fits all”. We will ensure that the operational drivers, standards, and metrics are promoted consistently across various locations.

The team levels required will also be calculated using scheduling metrics, often referred to as “rules” or “labor drivers”. These are specific to each brand and have been created by productivity and scheduling experts at Fourth.

There are multiple considerations when defining the rules, such as operational model, sales, timings, and dayparts. This may also include team roles, capabilities, non-revenue generating tasks, and minimum staffing levels.

The rules are examined with historical sales and Fourth’s Next Generation algorithm — considering last year’s data, recent trends, weather, and events — to generate the shape of workload demand in a graphical form. This output should help your business to optimize labor and increase sales and service levels by ensuring the right people are in the right place and at the right time.
