Employee scheduling for massive concerts

I was lucky enough to be able to take my daughter to the recent Taylor Swift concerts across Australia. I was also lucky to get up very close to this global super star. What an event, what a show!! I was amazed as I went to the Sydney show after the Melbourne show that they only had several days to pull the stadium down in Sydney, pack it up and ship it by truck to Brisbane and then set up for the Brisbane show. So the Sydney concert was on Friday night, at the end of the last song within minutes people were out scaling the stadium already bringing down lights and more. Same thing happened in Brisbane as the next show was Auckland only 3 days later, even harder time frames as everything had to be flown across the ditch. The amount of organising that goes into an event of this stage is mind blowing.

Seeing hundreds of contractors appear within minutes of the show finish got me to thinking I wonder what program they are using to schedule all of the staff?

Must be a good one!!

Deputy introduce paid breaks – making compliance even easier

Last month Deputy released a new feature – Paid Breaks.

 

What does this mean?

You can now ask employees to sign out and in for breaks giving you an electronic easy to understand report showing the breaks taken while the employee continues to get paid as required. Previously you could not do this as the employee if they signed into a break would not get paid.

What should you do?

Deputy says…Relieve your employees from all duties during their breaks – (Pay close attention to this one). Ensure your staff are not pressured to work during their allocated break times. IF they’re working at any capacity during their break, you’ll be liable to pay them in addition to their entitled wage.

Setting up paid breaks is easy…register to start a 30 day trial and book in training to get your employees signing in and out electronically.

It is now even easier to import your data in XERO….

How late do your employees run every day?

Deputy has discovered with the use of Big Data that at least 30% of workers across Australia’s major cities run late for work every day. That is almost 1 in 3 workers running late every day.

What does this cost your business?

The only way Deputy could gather this data was by creating an electronic scheduling program that made for easy management of rosters where employees can sign in and out each shift electronically. We all know what happens when an employee is running late on time sheets and turns up at 8.10 when they are due to start at 8.00. The employee unless challenged will always write 8:00 as the starting time even through they are running late.

Going electronic with Deputy removes all of these issues where the employee can only sign in and out at the time they arrive and leave. Deputy can also take the GPS position of the employee if they sign in from their own phone.

Deputy had the opportunity to use what many today call Big Data. More than 400,000 employee shifts were used to create the data, giving statisticians more than enough information to confirm 30% to be an average nationally.

Industries worst impacted by lateness included Construction, Hospitality and Healthcare, while retail fared better than all three. Maybe retail employees are more afraid of losing their jobs?

The average late start time ranged from 8 minutes and 4 seconds to 9 minutes and 24 seconds. I wonder how the 60% of employees that always arrive on time feel about 40% of their workmates turning up late?

If employee lateness is an issue in your business click through to start a 30 day trial of Deputy now and see how you can transform your business.
