Put the right person in the right place at the right time 

Workforce scheduling can be a complex, time-consuming, and downright frustrating task. You need to match employee availability, preferences, seniority, pay rates, skills, and certifications with fluctuating business demand to maximize productivity, engagement, and profits. But trying to schedule a diverse workforce using spreadsheets and semi-automated systems too often results in overstaffed shifts, shorthanded rushes, excessive overtime, employee disengagement, and even compliance issues. How can you schedule the right person with the right skills in the right place at the right time without overspending your budget or burning out your employees? 

Our scheduling module, part of our unified human capital management (HCM) suite, automatically generates best-fit schedules based on your organization’s unique requirements to help control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, improve productivity, and drive employee engagement. Easy-to-use tools and automated workflows simplify creation of best-practice schedules that align staffing with budget and demand. Automatic enforcement of scheduling rules and policies helps avoid employee grievances, litigation, and fines. And real-time visibility into accurate employee data, labor costs, and demand enables managers to make intelligent staffing decisions on the fly.
