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.
