CHAPTER 1. Loomings

Call me Ishmael. Some years ago—never mind how long precisely—having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off—then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.

Schedule templates

If you already have a schedule that works for you, you can save it as a template. Then you can use your template as the foundation of your weekly schedule and adapt it to fit the needs of each week. This makes you can schedule shifts in advance while streamlining your scheduling processes.

Build intelligent, compliant schedules

With knowledge of your demand patterns, the skills each employee has, the their contracted hours and any work regulations in place, Planday helps you rapidly build a smart schedule. This means everyone is in the right place at the right time and eliminates the risk of falling into non-compliance. You can also calculate the cost of the schedule to optimise your staffing levels.

Compliance with your rules

Your business might have policies about overtime or how much time workers need between shifts. Planday enables you to set up compliance warnings so the system automatically warns you when you’ve scheduled an employee for too many hours or shifts that are too close together.

Smarter communications

Quickly message or SMS individuals or groups of employees groups to keep everyone on the same page. For vital notifications, the force read feature means people have to read the message before they can continue using Planday. You can also send updates to staff members when they punch-in, so everyone knows about something time-critical or important to that shift.

“We have more than 260 hours a year in rota planning, if not more.”

“Prior to Planday, our HR manager spent about 5 hours weekly on staff scheduling, and with Planday in place he can do it in a few clicks within minutes. I also really appreciate the Punch Clock feature. The staff can simply clock in and out with their smartphone, making life easier for everyone.”

“The care home sector requires a lot of documentation. Care inspectors will come in and notice we have changed a policy. In the past, we had to print the policy out, hand it to all members of staff, have them psysically come to the office and sign to confirm they read it. Now we can send it out as an attachment in Planday and have them confirm thev’ve read it through the system.”
