Why Active Schedules for Business
Managing an efficient workforce that’s aligned with business goals is a common challenge in today’s workforce – especially with many organizations facing tighter budgets and increased regulations.
Key factors such as employee availability, staff turnover, labor and regulatory law requirements, last minute on-call and rotating shift changes, employee fatigue and absenteeism issues all play a significant role in aligning your workforce with your business needs.
Regardless of industry, staff scheduling is a tedious and time-consuming task. Manual scheduling methods using Excel spreadsheets or paper and pen leave too much room for human error and takes days, if not weeks to produce a functional and fair schedule. The result is seen in lost time, inaccurate payroll calculations, management and staff disengagement, increases in labor costs and overall loss of workforce productivity… all effecting the bottom line.
Employee scheduling can easily be managed using automation. In fact, the answer to effective employee management can be found in workforce management software that accurately and instantly creates schedules according to need and demand while complying with all labor and regulatory requirements. An effective solution provides businesses with the ability to manage staff and forecast demand which in result reduces costs while creating a more productive and engaged workforce.
