The task of creating employee work schedules manually can be cumbersome. Especially while trying to find a balance between managing staff availability and ensuring your employees have a good work-life balance? WorkTracker is an app-based employee availability management solution that empowers temporary staff to manage their own schedules. They can view upcoming shifts and apply with just a few clicks. Instant notifications mean that an employee can see well in advance when they have been pre-assigned to a shift. They can also see shift cancellations and any other important changes to their schedules.
This innovative app takes the guesswork out of scheduling by automating the process, ensuring that shifts are efficiently filled without compromising the personal lives of your employees.
By utilising YouRecruit, employers can easily create schedules that cater to their employees’ preferred shifts and availability. They may just want to work weekends, nights or late shifts if they need to drop the kids to school etc. Shift scheduling is effortlessly managed between YouRecruit and the WorkTracker staff availability app, reducing the need for back-and-forth communication and enabling seamless schedule adjustments.
Additionally, WorkTracker’s intuitive interface allows temporary employees to view and manage their schedules easily, with just a few taps. This streamlined system not only saves time but also fosters a happier and more engaged workforce.
Tracking employee availability and preferences
Employee satisfaction is crucial for the success of any organisation. A key factor in achieving high levels of satisfaction is ensuring that employees have a healthy work-life balance. When employees are able to find the right balance between their personal and professional lives, they are more likely to be motivated, productive, and loyal to their employers.
However, finding this balance can be challenging, especially when it comes to scheduling employees’ shifts. Traditional methods of scheduling often involve a manual process that can be time-consuming and prone to errors. This only adds to the manager’s workload. There is little room for accommodating the needs of employees who wish to work around their lifestyles and family commitments.
The benefits of app-based employee scheduling
One of the biggest challenges in creating employee schedules is ensuring that shifts are filled with available and qualified staff. This often requires managers to manually track and update staff availability, which can be tedious and prone to mistakes.
With YouRecruit’s app-based employee scheduling solution, this process becomes much easier. The app allows employees to easily input their own shift availability based around their personal lives. The app allows for these preferences to be automatically taken into account when the schedules are created. This not only saves time for managers but also ensures that shifts are filled with employees who are not only available but, importantly, compliant to work.
The app also allows employees to update their availability in real-time. This makes it easy to accommodate any last-minute changes or other things that might alter their working pattern. This level of flexibility not only improves employee satisfaction but also helps to prevent scheduling conflicts and reduce the need for overtime.
How YouRecruit app-based employee scheduling works
App-based employee scheduling offers a wide range of benefits for both employers and employees. One of the key advantages is the ability to automate the scheduling process, eliminating the need for manual data entry and reducing the risk of errors. This not only saves time but also ensures that shifts are filled efficiently, without leaving any gaps or overlaps.
Furthermore, app-based scheduling allows for greater transparency and communication between managers and employees. Employees can easily view their schedules, provide dates for when they can’t work, and view all of the information on an in-app calendar. This eliminates the need for back-and-forth communication and reduces the risk of miscommunication.
WorkTracker Timesheet management
Another benefit of app-based scheduling is the ability to easily manage and track employee hours. With the WorkTracker integrated timesheet feature, employees can easily log their hours worked, eliminating the need for paper timesheets or manual calculations.
This not only improves accuracy but also streamlines the payroll process, saving both time and resources. With the WorkTracker staff availability app, temporary employees can manage the timesheet process themselves. As well as entering their hours, they can have the timesheet signed off and submitted at the end of shift. The convenience this offers for employees working on the move will greatly eliminate unnecessary worry over salary remuneration.
