Consulting Example: 
Cutting Overtime Costs at a Hospital

  • A hospital was facing budget pressure from high and steadily growing overtime costs.  

  • We came up with a few hypotheses about the root causes of the overtime and then dug into the time and attendance data to test them.  
  • We found a link between use of sick leave and resulting need for overtime to fill the gap in coverage. 

  • Once management saw this, they were able to focus on enforcing existing overtime policies.

  • With this insight, management was able to cut overtime by 46%, saving $3 million per year.
