Before viewing the steps on how to run the SvA report, let’s take a quick look at a possible scenario!
An operator built their employee schedule around a 15% labor cost. What could cause a higher labor percentage?
The store made less sales than predicted, the Actual Labor % will be higher
The store made the sales predicted, but one of the employees stayed late, then the Actual Labor % will also be higher
You can reduce labor percentage by adjusting the schedule to meet the expected daily sales, cutting employees during dayparts when sales are low, increase sales, ensure employees clock out on time, just to name a few.
