Despite incredible advancements in business technology over the past decade, the basic task of creating employee schedules still frustrates most retail managers. Traditional spreadsheets introduce additional obstacles into the mix, since they can be difficult to decipher and time-consuming to generate. Workplace is a web-based application that takes a smarter approach to scheduling hourly employees. Using its mobile platform, managers are able to quickly generate employee schedules and send notifications in real-time when shift changes occur.
Workplace was created to meet the needs of businesses in the retail and hospitality industries. A few of the platform’s most important features include the ability to view schedules on mobile devices, receive notifications of changes as they happen, send alerts when new schedules are published, offer and accept extra shifts, and the ability to request time off or update preferences (such as hours of availability) through Workplace’s mobile app.
Workplace is a platform that helps mid-market retail and hospitality businesses run smarter and more efficiently. Specifically, the mobile solution can be used to generate hourly employee schedules that are optimized based on each business’ unique footfall patterns and sales activity levels. These Smart Schedules empower unit managers to provide the optimal level of scheduling at the right time, powered by intelligent forecasts and workforce flexibility. Workplace also provides a way for employees to engage and collaborate on the creation of their own schedules, which ultimately leads to higher levels of satisfaction and improved work/life balance.
Workplace isn’t just a solution for boosting employee satisfaction. The platform can also be used to drive revenue and increase customer service for retail and hospitality businesses. Workplace can be set-up to auto-generate weekly schedules based on employee availability, with Optimized Scheduling software that creates revenue-generating schedules based on workload demand information. Intelligent Forecasting and Business Intelligence tools also serve as a way for managers to gain more visibility with reports that contain Key Performance Indicators.
The primary reason why most businesses sign up to use Workplace is for the application’s advanced schedule management tools. Workplace offers a way for managers to quickly and easily create weekly employee schedules, taking into account things like footfall demand and employee availability. Managers have the option to use template-based schedules or auto-generated schedules based on the days and times when their employees are available.
As a manager who uses Workplace, you have the ability to view schedules across all of the businesses you run. These schedules are updated in real-time, with notifications being sent out to employees when new shifts become available, or whenever new weekly schedules have been published. The schedules that you create using Workplace are designed to satisfy your company’s Key Performance Indicators and your employees’ time constraints.
Workplace goes above and beyond basic scheduling spreadsheets, offering the latest tools for generating accurate schedules using workload demand information. This information is calibrated to improve service levels for hospitality and retail businesses, and it allows for the fine-tuning of labor hours against forecast demand.
Workplace understands that there’s more than one way to create a weekly employee schedule. In fact, the mobile platform comes equipped with auto-improvement that is able to generate millions of possible schedules taking employee preferences and availability into consideration. In addition to meeting your employees’ needs, Workplace also helps you meet your own goals. The system is designed to show how well each schedule satisfies the defined KPIs and business constraints.
Weekly schedules only tell half the story. In order to accurately pay their employees, businesses need to use robust attendance management tools. Workplace offers its own attendance management module for managers to use.
Click on to your Workplace account to view the Attendance Management module. This module will provide you with the ability to highlight exceptions to scheduled hours in real-time and generate accurate attendance records with ease. You can then use this information to pay your employees based on the actual hours worked, rather than the hours scheduled.
Workplace’s Intelligent Forecasting capability actually anticipates labor demand to increase the effectiveness of business schedules. Based on forecasted business activity and calculated labor demand, Workplace is able to predict traffic volumes and calculate staffing requirements.
Intelligent Forecasting tools can calculate labor demand in as little as 15-minute increments, which is incredibly useful for retail and hospitality businesses with hourly employees. In making these assessments, Workplace uses data on business drivers like sales, deliveries, and customer footfall patterns across periods of days or weeks.
Workplace integrates with a wide range of human resources (HR), traffic footfall, point-of-sale (POS), payroll, and business intelligence (BI) systems, including some household names like ADP, Workday, and Shoppertrak.
Workplace is available on a per-employee, per-week basis, which means businesses pay based on their actual usage of the application.
