organizations plan and set employee hours, determine appropriate shift lengths,
and communicate scheduling policies. All of these processes can directly affect
cost savings, employee satisfaction, and future growth – for better or worse.
Leaders in human resources (HR) can use
these four tips to help strengthen their approach to shift management.
Strategic shift management can lead to cost savings.
Operational efficiency is key for reducing
unnecessary spending. When developing shift policies and procedures, HR leaders
can apply strategies that keep costs low.

employees flexible scheduling options that consider their personal needs (e.g.,

happiness, lower stress, and enhance overall well-being for your staff.
Software support can reduce workload and improve processes.
