Avero's Group Overtime Report
In order to manage your labor costs and minimize your overhead, it is crucial to pay attention to and minimize your overtime, however possible. With the Group Overtime report, you can monitor the overtime trends of your enterprise to hold all locations accountable, keep overtime in control at a higher level, and identify best practices to share across your locations.
In this article, the following topics will be discussed:
Running a Group Overtime Report
The Group Overtime report is located within 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 all businesses within your profile.
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.
Using Attributes and Tags
Attributes and Tags are fully customizable and will help you organize all of the businesses within your enterprise, into distinct groups based on similar characteristics.
Example: if a "Region" attribute is selected, then the next step would be to select the specific region you want to analyze. Once selected, the businesses with that pertain to that specific region will group together. Tags will then extract businesses from that grouping.
To learn more about attributes and tags, 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
Using this filter allows you to narrow down the report to only employee's 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 soonest. Run a quick report with < 4 selected to see who among your servers should be cut first.
