Why do you need to digitally schedule employees?
Depending on your workforce, creation and measurement of a workforce planning model can be a complicated and time-consuming process.
Not only do you need to think about ensuring you have the right number of staff, supervisors and managers to meet your production needs.
But also, that all your shifts are covered, that you're compliant with Working Time Regulations and have a contingency plan for unplanned absences.
It's no wonder that research shows that workforce management is freeing up 7-12 hours of managers time each week and creating a 5% increase in productivity.
What is the goal of workforce planning?
It offers a chance for you to ease administrative burdens and offer transparency for your employees.
All planned hours instantly enable correct timesheets, reporting and identify absenteeism, lateness and variance between planned and actual labour costs.
Thanks to the real-time changes, payroll data will always be up-to-date for export, which can be done via the system in just a few clicks.
