Create a Workplace Where Management is Trusted, and Employees Are Valued
Today’s hourly and shift workers expect a relationship with their employer that transcends the exchange of work for a paycheck — and equitable, efficient, worker-centric scheduling plays a big role. Employee scheduling software gives employers the ability to optimize operations and improve employee retention at the same time.
- Create optimized schedules and reduce the need for frequent, last-minute changes that lead to chaos and frustration for workers.
- Automated processes give workers higher confidence in the scheduling practice, alleviating perceptions that scheduling processes are unfair.
- Easy-to-use tools allow workers to input their availability so that producing schedules that consider worker preferences is easier.
- Improve job satisfaction by giving employees mobile-friendly tools to manage work with life, such as 24/7 access to their work schedules, and the ability to pick up shifts and set work preferences.
