Employee scheduling can be tricky at the best of times, but when you juggle multiple worksites, multiple shifts, and mobile employees, it can feel almost impossible. Manual employee scheduling can take hours of effort and guesswork. With the right scheduling software that works with your time and attendance system, you can schedule smarter.
Here are three scheduling features that can help save you time and money when scheduling hourly employees:
Built In Budget Calculations
Manual employee scheduling can make determining if you are staying within your labor budget an estimation at best. Scheduling software that has built in budget calculations can give you real time insight into resulting labor costs of a proposed schedule, and help you stay within your budget.
When you operate on tight margins, every dollar counts. And keeping tabs on overtime can significantly cut labor costs and even save you the headache of a potential labor lawsuit. A scheduling software that alerts you when a proposed schedule will result in overtime can be a powerful savings tool.
Employee Qualifications Match
If employee credentials matter in your industry, it can be difficult to determine if all work sites have properly qualified employees. A scheduling system that allows you to match employee qualifications to job requirements can ensure that the right employee is where he/she needs to be.
