Scheduling is one of the most complicated elements of workforce management, and in most cases, only those responsible for it can relate to the complexity involved. It’s also one of the most critical aspects of operational success. You can’t maximize business results without the people there to help you do so.
When it comes to workforce scheduling, integrated solutions are everything. The right solution streamlines processes and relieves organizational pain points. It integrates with time and attendance, leave and absence management and payroll systems to enable comprehensive workforce management in a central, enterprise-wide solution.
Key Workforce Scheduling Benefits
Technology Helps You Build Better Schedules
Even with the vast array of technology available, many organizations are still building schedules in spreadsheets and posting a printed schedule on the wall. But what happens when schedules change? The reality is schedules are volatile and fluctuate daily. Organizations need integrated shift scheduling systems for a technology-driven world. When developing workforce schedules, managers should be able to view time-off requests, time and attendance data, including exceptions, and past schedule information.Managing Employee Relationships Starts with Scheduling
Workforce Scheduling Software Capabilities
A study by the Society for Human Resource Management found that 36% of organizations practiced workforce planning in 2020, which is up considerably from previous years. With more companies analyzing their workforce to determine how to prepare for future staffing needs, HR functions need data and tools they can leverage to provide answers and make plans, especially during challenging times. There are vital features to consider when looking at a scheduling system such as access for employees to view schedules online, flexibility to pivot shift coverage when changes occur and interdepartmental communication for better visibility.Read Our Blog on How to Solve Scheduling Issues
Decrease Labor Costs with Integrated Workforce Solutions
Many organizations looking to improve their processes to lower costs find that software offering scheduling integrated with time and attendance provides long-term benefits. It helps manage complex organizational structures, eliminate compliance issues, ease scheduling headaches, reduce turnover and allows HR departments to focus on improvements to the overall organization. Compliance requirements like those from the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) require an incredible amount of tracking, and consequences or failing to do so can cost your organization dearly. Automated and integrated systems take the headache and stress out of all these concerns.5 Ways Employee Scheduling Reduces Labor Costs
