How Smarter Scheduling Improves Employee Productivity

The Scheduling-Productivity Connection

Business owners and managers can significantly increase productivity through smarter scheduling with TimeSimplicity from SwipeClock.

An Employee Perk For Your Employees (That Doesn’t Cost You Any More)

When employers respect their employees’ life outside of work by offering flexible scheduling, team members are happier and more focused on their jobs.

Flexible Scheduling ROI

1) Engaged staff members are more productive, and
2) Flexible scheduling reduces turnover which may be more pricey than you realize.

“Scheduling … is having a huge effect on the bottom line. Increasing scheduling effectiveness offers a competitive edge that can make HR a budget hero.” Workforce management consultant Lisa Disselkamp

Scheduling Self-Service Delivers Benefits for Management and Employees

TimeSimplicity has a virtual trade board which permits employees to request a schedule change and pick up shifts without having to reach out to a manager.

With the Virtual Trade Board, managers can view and approve shift changes without having to contact staff members. When a manager approves a shift change, TimeSimplicity automatically sends a notification to each affected worker.

When employees are trusted to manage their own schedule changes, they have increased job satisfaction and feel a greater ownership in the business which improves profitability in the ways mentioned previously and also curtails the number of short-handed shifts. In addition, when supervisors don’t have to call and text team members to cover shifts they can be far more productive in their positions.
