BRING OUT THE FULL POTENTIAL OF YOUR STAFF
WHAT IS WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT
Workforce management, WFM for short, is a set of processes which an organisation deploys to utilise the full potential and productivity of staff members, from effective forecasting and automated staff planning to self-scheduling by staff. Using the correct Workforce Management software, organisational goals such as maximum business results and greater customer and staff satisfaction can be attained with ease.
In many organisations, especially large and labour-intensive ones, staff is the most important asset, so the improvement of WFM processes has a direct and significant positive impact on business results and the job satisfaction of staff.
THE WFM SOLUTION OF WORKFORCEIT
WHY WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT
For instance, retailers use workforce management tools to challenge the competition and offer their customers a good service, so that they leave the shop happy with their purchase. The difference is having exactly enough staff members with the right competencies in the right place and at the right time. Employees in retail enjoy working with innovative tools to access their schedule and perhaps request a shift swap or make an application for leave. This offers flexibility for both the business and the staff members and helps to combat overstaffing and understaffing.
In the care sector, it is the complexity of the many different services, the various contracts and irregular working hours as well as understaffing that you would like to solve with automated scheduling. Proper capacity planning means better care. Self-scheduling using a staff planning app can support both the care institution and the staff in achieving the optimal planning.
Of course, each sector will have its own specific wishes and requirements in the area of workforce management and staff planning software. As an organisation, you will want to offer the best possible service levels within your budgetary constraints. Staff members would like their working hours to fit in with their private life. At the same time customers, visitors, tourists, patients or clients expect to be served appropriately.
DIRECTIVE WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT
Large organisations find big data useful, for instance data about turnover streams, customer and visitor streams, package streams, care needs, etc. Using WFM software, they can deploy staff in response to this data and involve and inform colleagues in the scheduling, using the Employee Self Service. Furthermore, by viewing reports they can check at a later time whether the scheduling was adhered to. We call this directive workforce management.
