Does Weather affect your rostering or scheduling of employees?

Talking to hundreds of customers every month over the past few years with all sorts of adverse weather conditions impacting day to day sales I thought it was time to ask “Does Weather affect your rostering or scheduling of employees?”

I remember back when I first started working as a 14-15 year old in my fathers welding business, Speed was dad’s nickname but he was everything but fast, he built sheds and factories for people in the bush with orchards. He also spent a lot of time building silos for flour mills right across the central west of NSW. This was 30 years ago when I got my first experiences of how weather can impact a business. It was simple, if it rained and the job was outdoors then the work was called off for the day.

Often we experienced weather conditions that were to hot, welding back in those days was stick welding only, mig welding did not exist, we would be dressed in heavy blue one piece overalls that may well have been the first ever onesie.

Me with Dad

Hot weather stopped us welding when it went over 40 degrees Celsius or 104 Fahrenheit, but i bet ice cream shops, swimming pools, companies selling air conditioners, companies servicing air conditioners went gangbusters.
