Reducing No-Shows with Employee Scheduling Software
Author: Ian Stewart
When an employee doesn’t show up for work, it can be a hassle. The no-show can cause contractual compliance problems, hurt your company’s reputation, cause additional work for those employees who did show up, and cause additional chaos for the managers who need to quickly find a replacement.
It is easy to prevent many or most of no-shows, however. They are often caused by confusion or lack of communication around an employee’s schedule, and they can be mitigated by an appropriate employee scheduling software.
An employee scheduling software gives the managers the tools to create a work schedule quickly and cheaply. If you were scheduling one week in advance when you were scheduling manually, you may be able to bump that up to three weeks or more in advance with all the time that an employee scheduling software will save you. Employees will thank you for giving them a clearer picture of when they need to work.
With Celayix’s Team Xpress, employees can log in online to see their schedules. They don’t need to rely on their memory to know when their next shift is and they don’t need to phone their manager or their co-worker, which can be error-prone. Not all of your employees may have easy access to internet, however. With Celayix’s Voice Xpress, employees can phone in and our software will read their schedule to them over the phone.
Celayix gives you the tools to manage your workforce effectively and save you time and hassle. If you want to minimize your no-shows or if you have other problems related to employee scheduling, please reach out to us and we will be glad to help you.
