How Smarter Scheduling Improves Employee Productivity

The Scheduling-Productivity Connection

Business owners and managers can significantly increase productivity through smarter scheduling with TimeSimplicity from Advantage Payroll Services.

A Benefit For Your Employees (That Doesn’t Cost You Any More)

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

Flexible Scheduling ROI

1) Engaged employees are more productive, and
2) Flexible scheduling reduces turnover which may be more costly 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 allows staff members to request a schedule change and pick up shifts without having to contact a manager.

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

When associates are trusted to handle their own schedule changes, they have increased job satisfaction and feel a greater ownership in the company which supports profitability in the ways mentioned previously and also reduces the number of short-handed shifts. Furthermore, when managers don’t have to call and text staff members to cover shifts they can be far more efficient in their positions.
