They need numbers and categories to convince the money people.

Most likely shown to staff so they can see how deliriously happy they already are and to shut down requests for better staffing.
Of course, when it comes to how admin addresses staffing issues, colour me cynical.

We were always very careful not to answer the trap of questions,always had each other s back.
True they never ask whether your mgr is a lazy ,unapproachable ,incompetent loser, who sleeps all night.
