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.

Ask Questions to get the most accurate answers when selecting an employee scheduling software for your business

I received this question recently…

I have already evaluated Deputy. According to my staff I am unable to run two rosters (one for Kitchen and one for Floor) in my restaurants without having two ipad time clock kiosks at each site. The alternative was to have the kitchen and floor rostering combined so that I can have just the one ipad kiosk on site. It is a strange restriction that your competitors have managed to avoid.

After speaking with the customer and getting a full understanding of the issue we discovered….That this was simply a misunderstanding as the software is more than capable of handling unlimited departments on a single iPad kiosk.

Deputy_Mobile_App

The most popular way for employees to sign in & out globally with Deputy scheduling software is to use existing smart devices. Most employees today either have an iPhone or an android phone, each employee can use their own phone, download the Deputy app and start signing in and signing out. Employees can also see their own schedule, apply for leave, or simply build in future availability so that the person completing the schedule is automatically notified of the employee’s intentions.

Are you still managing staff schedules manually?

Does this sound like your business?

“Before we moved on to Deputy, employee scheduling was a predominantly manual task and incredibly time consuming. Each week, my assistant manager had to lock down 24-hour schedules with the team whose flexibility – particularly the students – was always fluid. Assigning shifts, communicating changes and filling any unassigned shifts was highly manual. And managing around their constantly changing availability meant endless calls and emails to assign and confirm shifts.

frustrated on phone

You can move away from all of these issues with electronic staff scheduling.

Imagine not picking up the telephone to call your casual workforce to ask them what days they can work next week. Imagine that your staff populate their own availability in advance so that when you go to build the weekly schedule the next week you already know who is available and who is not.

Imagine making a  change to your staff schedules and not having to pick up the phone trying to get in contact with all of the staff that the changes have impacted. Imagine that you click a button and the information with all of the changes automatically goes to your employees smart phone.

Imagine having a shift become available not have to sit on the phone calling multiple employees until you found one employee to say yes they could cover the shift. Imagine creating an open shift that would be available for all employees who qualified for the shift to be taken by the first employee to accept the open shift without you making one phone call.

Imagine…….
