Automatic Employee Scheduling
Know more than just when employees are "available." With WhenToWork time preferences for "prefer" and "dislike" (and even "cannot work" times, if you let them) can be entered. Preferences do not change existing schedules - they can enhance AutoFill or help when looking for replacements.
Knowing employee preferences not only makes scheduling easier, it has been proven to reduce overtime, absenteeism, and turnover costs and also improve morale.
And it makes finding last minute replacements a breeze, because you know immediatley who is available at that time, and also who really wants to work that shift.
Studies have found that employees are more likely to accept work schedules if their scheduling preferences are considered.
When you use AutoFill you know you are getting the best possible schedule. You get your shifts covered and employees are much more likely to accept their schedules because you considered their preferences.
Our proprietary scheduling engine, developed by a team of Math PhDs, ensures that preferences and other parameters you set are considered, resulting in the best possible schedule for everyone.
After AutoFill, you can make any changes you like. Update one or more shifts, seek replacements and quickly update your schedules.
You can even clear the AutoFill assignments and start over.
If you are one of those scheduling managers who does NOT want to consider employee work time preferences when you assign shifts, it is still to your benefit to let employees set their "prefer" and "dislike" times (fair scheduling).
You can AutoFill and choose to ignore preferences, but it still is really good information to know when you are trying to find a last minute replacement.
It allows you to know who might be the best choice to assign. There really is no down-side to letting employees enter their prefer and dislike times.
