Business Analyst

Date: Jul 31, 2019

Location: Carthage, MO, US

Company: Leggett & Platt

Leggett & Platt is in search of a Business Analyst to join the Customer & Product Profitability (CPP) Initiative. CPP is a small team within Operations Services that models profitability at a customer and product level.  We provide a decision-making tool to our business partners that aids in pricing analysis and helps identify cost opportunities. 

The CPP Business Analyst will support one to two business units, working with new deployments and fully mature models. A new deployment involves visiting branches for discovery sessions, meeting with branch personnel and business unit management, process and model mapping with activity-based costing, and ultimately building the model in our software.  Once a model is in production, we run monthly reports and provide analysis to our business units with the goal of supporting actions that improve profitability.

In addition to the monthly routine, we participate in many special projects and ad hoc analysis requests.  Whether designing a new reporting dashboard, helping compile sales and cost information, or working with our users to find helpful data – we don’t always know the answer, but we work hard to try to find it.  To be a successful member of our team you need to love problems!

We’re looking for someone with:

  • A Bachelor’s degree is required, a relevant field (Accounting, Finance, Logistics, etc) is preferred
  • Excellent problem-solving skills
  • Ability to identify key data, analyze it, and then highlight and communicate the relevant story
  • Good verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to work independently to accomplish tasks while contributing to a strong team environment
  • Excel – familiarity with Pivot Tables, Vlookups, and IF statements are a plus
  • Experience in sales, finance, IT, or operations

We offer a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, discount stock purchase plan, tuition reimbursement, employee discounts and more.

Reasons you’ll love it here:  Our company culture reflects values like integrity, ownership, and authenticity. We take these to heart, and if you do as well, you’ll fit right in.

Since 1883, Leggett & Platt (NYSE: LEG) has been creating a wide variety of innovative products that can be found in most homes, offices, and automobiles. Today our growing company consists of more than 22,000 employee-partners in 120 manufacturing facilities located in 18 countries. We’re not just hiring, we’re building a better company.
