The largest contributor to risks and costs in 24/7 and shiftwork operations is the shift schedule. With sub-optimal shift schedules, employee performance is impaired and this negatively impacts shiftworker productivity, absenteeism, employee turnover, health and safety. The process of finding the right shift scheduling solution can be tough, and this is where CIRCADIAN’s experience and solutions are invaluable.
- Shift Schedule Optimization. Shiftworkers care about their shift schedule almost as much as their paycheck, and sometimes more. But there are so many opinions and false assumptions that finding the best shift schedule for your operation can be a real challenge. For over 25 years CIRCADIAN has guided thousands of companies through a well-defined and highly effective process that creates employee buy-in and achieves management objectives.
- Expanding to 7-Day Operations. CIRCADIAN helps companies realize the considerable returns and increased efficiency of 24/7 operations without loosing the critical support of the workforce. By helping with all steps from developing the business case and transition plan, selling it to the employees and implementing win-win operationally efficient shift scheduling and employee policies we ensure that the ROI is maximized.
- Proportional Staffing. In many operations workload fluctuates more or less predictably hour by hour over the 168 hours in the week. Equally staffed fixed shifts can be a highly inefficient method of shift scheduling. CIRCADIAN helps 24/7 operations achieve enormous gains by matching employee duty to workload and then devising employee-acceptable shift schedules which maximize employee morale and performance.
- Shiftwork Opportunity Assessment. With 25 years of experience in every conceivable type of shiftwork operation, CIRCADIAN can help you evaluate your schedule. Managers are often too close to their own operation to see the opportunities, or may only have limited experience of possible alternatives. CIRCADIAN has the benefit of solving shift scheduling problems every day and knowing where the world-class solutions lie.
