Many business owners are lagging behind when it comes to flexible schedules. This is unfortunate. Providing flexible schedules benefits everyone at your organization. It’s also a must if you want to hire qualified millennials. They are becoming the largest group in the labor pool—so it’s vital to provide perks they have come to expect.
Employers who don’t address millennial’s expectations may remain short-staffed. Staffing difficulties restrain business growth. If you don’t have the man- and womanpower to be effective, your company is at risk.
TimeSimplicity makes it easy to offer flexible schedules to staff members.
Templates Make Scheduling a Breeze
With TimeSimplicity, you can build standard schedules in seconds. You can create complex flexible employee schedules in minutes. You start by creating templates for any team or shift you need. You can also design templates for seasons or projects. When the base schedules are in place, it’s easy to drag and drop employees into shifts.
When creating flexible schedules, it’s usually necessary to offer non-standard shifts. These are a hassle when using spreadsheets. TimeSimplicity handles non-standard shifts with no problem.
Schedule Rules Keep Track of Everything
TimeSimplicity lets you set schedule rules. You can restrict employees from shifts they can’t work. Employee profiles ensure those with the necessary qualifications are in the right place. Define hour limits to keep part-time or full-time status. Set compliance rules for any workplace law.
You can add new rules or adjust existing rules when necessary. After you have developed rules, the system will alert you when building schedules. Outsourcing your memory is a game changer.
If you need to adjust the schedule after you post it, you won’t need to start all over because the base schedule is in place. TimeSimplicity takes the hassle out of schedule adjustments.
Employee Self-Service is Essential
Another must-have feature is employee self-service. If your personnel can’t check their schedule from their phone 24/7, it might be a deal breaker. Self-service HR portals put employees in control. This is important to millennials. They can swap shifts and interact with co-workers and supervisors in a convenient portal.
