The Royal Botanic Gardens expand employees scheduling with Time & People

This week after a successful pilot across 5 locations that make up the Botanic Gardens in and around Sydney and the Blue Mountains from 2018 with 120 employees The Botanic Gardens have expanded the employee scheduling software to assist with staff rosters by adding 80 specialist teachers to the system. Prior to going digital everything was manual, time sheets, scheduling by spreadsheet and telephone calls, everything was time-consuming and delayed due to the way manual systems work. Moving forward employees will have a lot more freedom to organise schedules with less telephone calls and text messages.

Employees can from their mobile device

  • Sign in and out each day.
  • Pre register for leave
  • Advise unavailability into the future automatically tied to the schedule
  • See their schedules into the future
  • Swap shifts when needed – approved by supervisors.
  • Publish an open shift where the next equally skilled person can take the shift – approved by supervisors.

The Education team do an amazing job of educating thousands of students every year. From the Botanic Gardens website…..Students at all levels will love our practical gardening experiences, outdoor learning activities and the exciting, immersive exhibitions at our new living art gallery, The Calyx. Our team of highly-skilled educators will engage your pupils with the curriculum via hands-on learning.

The Royal Botanic Gardens Society is made up of three key locations, Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney, The Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan, Blue Mountains Botanic Gaden Mount Tomah. There are many other aspects to the Royal Botanic Gardens including the Plant Bank with over 10,000 collections and more than 100 000 000 individual seeds.

Is this the end of fingerprint employee time clocks?

A recent case in court has shocked everybody, an employee who refused to sign in with his finger biometrically to work every day was sacked, he then sued the company he worked for and lost his first court case, appealed and then won in the high court.

This should send the shivers down the backs of every company asking employees to sign in and sign out with a biometric time clock. This was the first time a case like this was bought to court.

His case was simple – my biometrics are my biometrics and you cannot have them and you can’t force me to give them to you.

Deputy evacuation reporting

I get asked this question about evacuation and time and attendance a lot,  typically a time and attendance system has all the hourly paid employees who sign in and sign out each day but management data is missing as they do not physically sign in and each each day. Some customers will ask can we use the access control data for management as they all tap into the access control system. Access control system data is not much good if you do not have a turnstile to make sure single file only, when access control is on a door one person swipes and opens the door and multiple people can walk through without swiping.

So what is the best way to get an evacuation report from a time and attendance system?

The answer is quite easy really, you can implement a visitor management system that has the ability to receive all the employee clocking’s from the time and attendance system and allows salaried staff to sign in and out their presence on site for evacuation, all of the data comes together in one evacuation module including any contractors currently signed in on site.
