Communication is key when scheduling many employees across multiple locations

We all know now that Deputy is the global leader when it comes to employee scheduling. But what about communication?

The communication module has recently been updated and you can now not only post messages and create group messages to open up communication but you can also include important files that need to be shared across your employees. If you’re a small business with 10 employees working out of a single location some of these tools may not have the same benefits that a company with hundreds of employees and multiple locations will gain.

Imagine being able to share information with all of your employees across multiple locations across the country or around the world at exactly the same time. Deputy has made this possible with the recent communication updates to the news feed.

Key communication tools when scheduling employees include pushing the schedule out to employees directly to their smart phone. If you are still running your schedules with spreadsheets is time to come into the 21st century. How many telephone calls do you make each week communicating your schedules to your employees? If you are spending 10 minutes a day making these calls then it is time to go electronic.

Imagine being able to share information and ask questions that employees can confirm electronically. These simple features completely open up communication between management and employees when spread across multiple locations. Communicating with your employees has simply never been easier.

I’ve spoken to customers in the past who have used Facebook as a communication tool and it is a great tool and until recently I would have suggested to a customer to continue to use Facebook the way they do. However with these recent changes to the Deputy scheduling software it is now time to move away from your spreadsheets and Facebook and bring everything together into one system.

Imagine being able to send a message to one single employee, sure you can do this with your mobile phone and send a text message however this often has a cost associated with it and of course the message is lost in the future or deleted. Communicating within your scheduling software gives you the ability to be able to go back into the past and see information that was communicated between management and employees without having to go back through your mobile phone and sort thousands of messages just to find one.
