With knowledge of your demand patterns, the skills each employee has, the hours they are contracted for and any work regulations in place, Planday helps you rapidly build a smart schedule, meaning everyone is in the right place at the right time, and eliminates the risk of falling into non-compliance.
Planday also calculates the cost of the schedule, allowing you to optimise staffing levels accordingly.
Planday allows you to publish ‘open’ shifts for specific roles which are made available to employees with the skills required to fill the shift, and allows them to request it. This can significantly reduce absenteeism and improve the customer experience by increasing the chances that employees want to be there.
Employees can offer or swap their shifts with colleagues with the same skillset, giving them a new level of control over their time, all kept under control by manager approvals.
Employees can also set their availability within the app to avoid being scheduled a shift that they know they won’t be able to take.
