Quickly generate error-free schedules, handle shift-trades, and fill open-shifts
Ensures staff receive relevant notifications via SMS text, email and app
Optimized for seasonal, part-time and auxiliary employee scheduling
We understand that as a manager employed at a post-secondary education institution, you can have difficulty fitting all the tasks you’re responsible for into a workday. Scheduling busy part-time and seasonal student employees and auxiliary staff, while still managing your full-time workforce, means you spend a fair share of your time moderating availability, approving shift-trades and filling missed shifts. You’re constantly looking for ways to increase efficiency and recognize that the right technology implemented in a timely manner can benefit both you and the workforce you’re responsible for.
Part-time students and auxiliary staff have busy schedules that can make it difficult to keep track of when they work. Managers can remain confident as employees can sync their work schedule directly into the third-party calendar apps that they already use (iCal, Google Calendar, Outlook).
Both managers and students can access the eSchedule application from their device, anywhere and anytime. The mobile app combined with real-time SMS notifications ensure that your employees are always in reach. Whether it is to pickup a shift another employee just called in sick for, or to submit an upcoming absence request.
The availability of your part-time employees is constantly changing. Accommodate this by leaving some shifts “open” and letting them select the schedule they will actually show up for. Further, reduce the stress around absenteeism by instantly releasing the missed shift as open and having it automatically notify all available employees that a shift needs to be covered.
Employing part-time, seasonal and auxiliary staff can mean new users are always rotating through the application. eSchedule is easy to learn for managers, and even easier for these employees. Upon their first log-in to the app, they are presented with an introduction video and an entire library of other self-directed resources that ensure they know what to do.
