Avero's Overtime Report
Paying attention to and minimizing your overtime is crucial to managing your labor costs and minimizing your overhead. With the Overtime report, cut and call in your employees more strategically by tracking their progress towards overtime throughout the pay-week. This report also allows you to act on opportunities to re-arrange the floor chart or BOH to ensure those employees nearing overtime are off your clock before they get there.
In this article, the following topics will be discussed:
Running an Overtime Report
Overtime is located under the Labor tab in Avero. When you first run the report, the default will show you the pay-week, week to date summation of hours worked as of yesterday for all employees at the business selected.
Every Avero report has a unique Report Generator to help you filter your results using metric filters. This is the meat of your report. Each report within Avero has a defined number of metrics that can be included in one report. We have defined all of the metric options on the Metrics page.Once you've made your choices, hit Go. For instructions on how to utilize the Report Generator, reference this article.
Avero reflects the Job Classes as they are defined in your POS (if labor is integrated into your POS) or time clock system. These are also tied to departments, such as Front of House or Back of House.
Hours to Overtime
One of the most vital reports to automate to control labor proactively. Using this filter allows you to narrow down the report to only employees below a threshold of hours left prior to going into overtime. This filter allows you to very quickly identify who within your staff is going to reach overtime the quickest. Run a quick report with < 4 selected to see who among your servers should be cut first.
