RESPONSIBILITIES Labor planner Provide labor Hours to show Tasks and Register time Division Manager Train, Track & Enforce proper Use of Planner- Communicate With Store Manager & Planner Store Manager Initiate proper Schedule & Track Daily to Ensure Correct Hours Used Communicate To Division Manager All stores should utilize the labor program
Sales per Labor Hour Your store hours are determined by the number of customer transactions as well as the unique fixed and variable store tasks for your store. Total sales divided by total store hours (including 50 hours for salaried manager) = Sales Per Labor Hour
Every Task on the Labor Planner has a corresponding task list to use for training. The task list details exactly what is expected to be accomplished in the task. For example: Thoroughly stocking the cooler vs. touch up stocking, which is restocking high volume items, etc. Detail Oriented and Customized
Customer Count Report Our Labor Planner indicates the number of customers in three ways - By Hour - By Shift - By Day Using 30 seconds per avg. transaction with one person on register would leave 25 ½ minutes to perform tasks in the store Measurable and Accountable
DIVISION MANAGERS Train, track and enforce proper use of labor planner Contact each store on pre determined schedule to verify that store hours are on track for the week. (Use Tracking form) Adjust & correct if necessary. Monitor and approve (prior to week ending) all overtime. Communicate any salaried manager absence to HR Director for adjustments by Friday of each week ending. STORE MANAGERS Schedule store hours within allotted hours on labor planner Use the Customer Count Report to schedule associates for best customer service Train associates to accomplish goals and tasks on planner All overtime hours must have prior approval by division manager Verify DAILY correct hours are used (per planner) and adjust if needed to achieve goal.
