Note: Metrics usually vary from company to company and there are several statistics and trends delivered on employment, labor etc. by different services. However, a holistic approach to category management when it comes to workforce as well as the ability to generate trends which provide actionable information has been hard to find. Management would be benefited by a view that first allows them to pick a category and the spend, workforce, headcount and usage in all different aspects for that category.
