The Scheduling-Productivity Connection
Business owners and managers can significantly increase productivity through smarter scheduling with TimeSimplicity from Express Data Systems.
An Employee Perk For Your Employees (That Doesn’t Cost You Any More)
When employers respect their employees’ life outside of work by providing flexible scheduling, team members are happier and more focused on their jobs.
Flexible scheduling improves the bottom line in two ways:
1) Engaged employees are more productive, and
2) Flexible scheduling reduces turnover which may be more expensive than you realize.
“Scheduling … is having a huge effect on the bottom line. Increasing scheduling effectiveness offers a competitive edge that can make HR a budget hero.” Workforce management consultant Lisa Disselkamp
Scheduling Self-Service Delivers Benefits for Management and Employees
TimeSimplicity has a virtual trade board which permits associates to request a schedule change and pick up shifts without having to contact a manager.
With the Virtual Trade Board, supervisors can view and approve shift changes without having to contact associates. When a manager approves a shift change, TimeSimplicity automatically sends a notification to each affected worker.
When employees are trusted to handle their own schedule changes, they have increased job satisfaction and feel a greater ownership in the organization which supports profitability in the ways mentioned previously and also minimizes the number of short-handed shifts. In addition, when managers don’t have to call and text associates to cover shifts they can be far more effective in their positions.
