Sunset Boulevard gains boost in productivity and work satisfaction with support from Monday.com
A dedicated decision by Sunset Boulevard’s management to use Monday.com as a core tool in the operating model helped increase productivity for 82% of the company’s employees. At the same time, 70% feel they got higher work satisfaction.
Sunset Boulevard, a Danish chain of high-quality fast-food restaurants, needed new tools to heighten effectiveness in the organization after changing to a 4-day workweek.
“Our vision and challenges are to create higher employee satisfaction and better work/life balance with a 4-day workweek and a paid Friday off. Also, we keep our goal of continuous growth of the company and a vision to open more Sunset Boulevard restaurants across the country. To succeed with this challenge, we needed new and different digital tools in our operating model to ensure that our strategic goals are aligned with the infrastructure and that the workflows run as smoothly as possible. Monday.com has become one of the most important tools in our daily work,” says Jens Broch, CEO of Sunset Boulevard.
Four essential areas of improvement
After using and testing over 30 different tools to improve the workflow Monday.com has over the past three years become the preferred tool for Sunset Boulevard to optimize productivity and improve results and work satisfaction
“By gathering all Sunset Boulevard’s data and work tasks in one place and use Monday.com as the core tool in our daily work we reap massive benefit both in the organization and on a personal level in the four essential areas of project management, team work, meetings and personal workflow.
“After introducing the 4-day workweek our studies show that 82% of employees experience increased efficiency and 70% feel increased work satisfaction. Monday.com has been a key tool in this process. We have streamlined the organization’s workflows and set common ground rules. For example, we have reduced the number of meetings by 40% and the number of meeting participants by 60%. Through meeting templates, 96% of all meetings today have an Agenda.
We then work live during the meetings in Monday.com and set up actions and deadlines directly in the system. This has also reduced pseudo work by 11%,” says Jens Broch.
Through Monday.com, planning, coordination, and communication in the projects at Sunset Boulevard have also improved significantly. Employees send fewer emails and knowledge sharing in the projects is better. Each employee has a personal workspace in Monday.com that makes it easy to see their tasks, deadlines, actions, etc.
Success with tailored Enterprise set-up
Sunset Boulevard is driven by an urge to show that fast food can be done in a higher quality. This is the same urge and approach to do better and raise the standards that have become the reason the company has chosen to build their daily workflow around Monday.com.
“We immediately saw the benefits when we started using Monday.com. After years of daily use, we are now reaping massive benefits. This also led to our management’s decision on investing in the Enterprise solution and strategic consulting and tailored support from the Danish Enablen team. They a very experienced and skilled in Monday.com and together we continuously develop the best set-up possible for Sunset Boulevard”, concludes Jens Broch.
