The costs associated with employee absenteeism add up fast. Managers have to scramble to find replacements, taking up valuable time, and more demands are put on the rest of your staff. Productivity, quality of service and job satisfaction all suffer.
By keeping shifts filled, MakeShift’s easy scheduling app helps managers and employees focus on their work, instead of trying to keep the calendar filled and pick up the slack left by absent workers.
Unnecessary absenteeism often leads to more overtime. This is a huge and unpredictable expense, and it’s largely a result of poor scheduling.
MakeShift’s easy scheduling tool helps keep the schedule filled by letting employees request available shifts directly through the app. By cutting down on absenteeism, OT is easier to keep in check.
Losing employees hurts productivity and morale. Finding new staff costs money, as you invest in recruitment, training and knowledge sharing. It’s estimated that an $8/hour employee carries a turnover cost of as much as $3,500.
By giving employees a little more control with simple scheduling software—the power to set availability, trade shifts with co-workers and pick up available shifts—it’s easier for them to balance work with life.
