Goodyear Auto Service implemented the Workforce Analytics solution in 2016, from Kronos Incorporated, to transform workforce data into actionable insights. With hundreds of locations nationwide, Goodyear Auto Service has been using other Kronos solutions for more than 10 years to increase efficiencies.

News Facts

  • A longtime user of the Kronos time and attendance solution, Goodyear Auto Service achieved several benefits through the years including centralization of key workforce business processes.
  • With added visibility into labor data with Workforce Analytics, significant improvements have been made in overtime spend. Within the first year of implementation, the retailer achieved a significant reduction in overtime spend, which has sustained into the second year.
  • Goodyear Auto Service is achieving these results with Kronos Workforce Analytics by following the philosophy below:
    • Consistency in communications – Every manager at the corporate, district, and store level can see standardized labor reporting, filtered for their area of influence. This helps alleviate communication barriers that can exist within retail organizations.
    • Controlled message – Workforce Analytics helps guide managers’ attention to critical business needs. Reporting is carefully developed and released so managers can focus their attention on priority items.
    • Cadence in reporting - Reports are pushed from the solution (either daily or weekly), which helps weave effective labor management into the culture of store and field teams.
