Take Management/Staff Relationships to New Heights

People Hi-FiveA healthy relationship between staff and managers has been shown to impact turnover rates, vacancy rates, sick calls, quality of work, and of course staff satisfaction scores. With so much at stake, it can seem daunting to tackle improvements, but it doesn’t have to be.

Here are a few ways that providing staff with mobile, cloud-based scheduling can improve and support healthy staff/manager relationships.

  1. Respectful Communications – Eliminating all those phone calls asking staff to work not only saves time, but it also honors peoples personal lives. With one click, staff can be notified of an open shift via text message or email and with one click they can respond if they are available to work.
  2. Staying Connected with Mobile – You no longer need to be at home or near a computer to know what’s going on. See schedules, get notified of open shifts, swap shifts with others, get announcements, all on your mobile phone or tablet.
  3. Empowering Participation – Bringing visibility into your staffing needs empowers staff to get engaged. We have seen remarkable changes in staff filling open shifts when they can see what is needed and easily pick up shifts.
  4. Offering Flexibility  –  Giving staff the ability to swap shifts with other qualified staff helps them self-manage life situations or changes that come up and eliminates them having to explain to managers. Managers review and approve shift swap requests, so everybody wins.
  5. Decreasing Manager Workload – Freeing up managers time, by simplifying scheduling and getting staff more involved, gives managers more time to support staff and build a positive culture.

It’s easier than most can imagine to adopt cloud-based scheduling. Modern scheduling solutions are up and running in days, there is no IT help required, and all maintenance and upgrades are taken care of for you. All of this is bundled into simple monthly pricing that is very affordable and has no hidden costs or surprises.  Take advantage of the next generation of scheduling solutions and support healthy work environments for staff and managers.
