28 day rotating roster 8 hour or 10 hour days? Which one works better?

If you have ever worked one of these schedules or had to organise staff around one of these schedules you will understand the amount of work that goes into keeping the schedule in place. I have seen two common types of 28 day rotating rosters.

  • 28-day rotating roster 8 hour day
  • 28-day rotating roster 12 hour day

Each of these schedules has different requirements and are both designed for a 24/7 operation.

An example 12 hour schedule for rotating 28-day roster – The most common approach is detailed below for a 12-hour schedule, each employee will work an average 42 hours per week across the 4-week cycle.

A Team –  DDOODDD-OODDOOO-NNOONNN-OONNOOO
B Team –  NNOONNN-OONNOOO-DDOODDD-OODDOOO
C Team –  OONNOOO-DDOODDD-OODDOOO-NNOONNN
D Team –  OODDOOO-NNOONNN-OONNOOO-DDOODDD

Benefits of a 12-hour rotating roster over 28 days include

  • An employee does not work more than 3 days in a row
  • You get a 3-day long weekend every second weekend
  • If you take two leave days on a 2-day working week you get 7 days off

Who would not enjoy these benefits, the only real downside is one of the weeks you will work 62 hours.

The major downside of an 8 hour day rotating 28-day roster is you can work seven weeks before getting a weekend off. the world we live in now is 24/7 but who would only want one weekend off every 7 weeks? How could you play sport or watch the kids play sport? This would be a tough 28-day roster to handle, I know it would not work for me. On top of this once a month you will work 7 nights in a row.

Are you running a manual 28-day rotating roster?

Onboard employee data direct to Xero with your scheduling software

I wrote recently about the new onboarding functionality allowing employees to add their own details to assist with the paperwork administration of onboarding employees.

Great news, this data will now go into Xero directly

Flexi pricing for flexible scheduling of your workers is about to get easier

Managing flexible workforces where there may be 300 people but only 40-50 may work at any one time across the week has constantly been an issue for cloud scheduling. Finally, the solution is here at the lowest cost, inactive users now only need to pay 20 cents per week from the 1st of July 2019.

Industries like security, retail, and hospitality have always had this issue of many people to choose from but only a portion of the employee database ever worked each week.
