  • The global payroll division of an internet search giant, which has offices across 50 countries, worked with several local payroll service providers or PSPs.
  • The payroll division operated a unified helpdesk for its employees, with service agents from all the PSPs working on one platform. However, the employees were dissatisfied with the PSPs’ services.
  • The client needed our support in helping to track KPIs such as CSAT, identify pain points, and identify areas of improvement.


  • Set up a pipeline to collect closed employee tickets data from the payroll helpdesk.
  • Computed KPIs such as average turn-around time (TAT) and CSAT.
  • Visualized KPIs on a Tableau dashboard with views of different time-scale granularities for different audiences (payroll managers, global heads of payroll, and CFOs).
  • Leveraged text content in each payroll ticket (i.e., initial text body and responses exchanged with helpdesk agent) for VADER sentiment and bag-of-words analyses to identify key topics related to the common issues in payroll and associated sentiments.


  • Identified the key topics in which service agents needed more training, information or access privileges to readily help employees.
  • Regularly leveraged the tracked KPIs for monthly leadership workshops to discuss key challenges in different countries and brainstorm possible resolutions.
  • Improved the average monthly CSAT score from 87% to more than 95%.

Algorithms Used: VADER sentiment analysis, bag-of-words analysis
