Q. QuestionWhat is the process of shift planning?

Making sure you have the right people on the job every working day requires effective shift planning. The process involves assigning employees to work throughout specific slots of the day, and making sure they are informed of these times.

It also integrates with essential tools like holiday management and time-tracking to make the work faster, more accurate and ensure you’re never under or overstaffed.
