Fill More Open Shifts with Staff Engagement

CollaborateKey to filling more open shifts is creating an environment where scheduling becomes a collaborative process between managers and staff, one in which staff are empowered to be active participants in scheduling.

With the help of cloud-based scheduling technology, implementing collaborative scheduling practices has never been easier. Unprecedented mobile access, real-time visibility into needs and instant updates to changes in the schedule across the system, keeps everyone informed on the most current schedule situation. Staff can easily see work opportunities and select a shift to work with a single click.

When everyone is working together on the schedule and staff are engaged, there is more of a sense of ownership, more thoughtful and respectful communications and not only do more shifts get filled but staff/manager relationships improve, an important driver of staff retention.
