28 day rotating roster 8 hour or 10 hour days? Which one works better?

If you have ever worked one of these schedules or had to organise staff around one of these schedules you will understand the amount of work that goes into keeping the schedule in place. I have seen two common types of 28 day rotating rosters.

  • 28-day rotating roster 8 hour day
  • 28-day rotating roster 12 hour day

Each of these schedules has different requirements and are both designed for a 24/7 operation.

An example 12 hour schedule for rotating 28-day roster – The most common approach is detailed below for a 12-hour schedule, each employee will work an average 42 hours per week across the 4-week cycle.

A Team –  DDOODDD-OODDOOO-NNOONNN-OONNOOO
B Team –  NNOONNN-OONNOOO-DDOODDD-OODDOOO
C Team –  OONNOOO-DDOODDD-OODDOOO-NNOONNN
D Team –  OODDOOO-NNOONNN-OONNOOO-DDOODDD

Benefits of a 12-hour rotating roster over 28 days include

  • An employee does not work more than 3 days in a row
  • You get a 3-day long weekend every second weekend
  • If you take two leave days on a 2-day working week you get 7 days off

Who would not enjoy these benefits, the only real downside is one of the weeks you will work 62 hours.

The major downside of an 8 hour day rotating 28-day roster is you can work seven weeks before getting a weekend off. the world we live in now is 24/7 but who would only want one weekend off every 7 weeks? How could you play sport or watch the kids play sport? This would be a tough 28-day roster to handle, I know it would not work for me. On top of this once a month you will work 7 nights in a row.

Imagine scheduling templates for your employee schedules that you can use again and again

Posted on: November 12, 2018 | Categories: scheduling StaffRosters Blog

How easy would that be?

Imagine you could build your employee schedule this xmas for one or more locations and next year you can use the template you built this year, as the year goes by and you build out multiple templates to deal with holidays, public holidays etc. How easy does scheduling become when you can create scheduling templates to be used again and again.

Start your own trial of employee scheduling and build out your own templates across one or many locations.


Now Integrated with ACTAtek employee biometric time clocks

As cloud software has taken off over the past decade for time and attendance and scheduling questions still arise on hardware, do you need hardware? If an employee has a phone app that only works on the employee phone why would you consider biometric fingerprint readers for employees to sign in and out?

Put simply it is a choice, along with going biometric comes an additional cost, if you have 20 locations with 600 employees you can either have employees sign in and out with their own mobile phone (no cost to you) on an iPad set up in kiosk mode (additional cost) or a biometric fingerprint reader for employee time and attendance.
