Dealing with call-outs and vacant shifts isn’t easy – but offloading some of the work to employees can make all the difference. Alert staff to open shifts and quickly fill them on a centralized, mobile-first system. Getting staff involved cuts down on the phone calls, emails, and texts managers need to make, improving overall frontline efficiency.
Keep timesheets flawless by automatically accounting for overtime rules, allowances, maximum work hours, and more. Tailor your requirements according to FLSA and state regulations, and receive real-time alerts to avoid class action lawsuits and DOL fines.
Control your labor costs with real-time visibility into wage and hour metrics for every bid. Review hourly rates, validation errors, and overtime potentials, to determine who gets the shift. Granular insight like this gives you more control over how you schedule staff, keeping you within budget and error-free.
Employees can view hours and potential earnings for every open shift they are looking to claim. Managers can even add bonuses to these shifts to further incentivize bidding. Transparency like this improves employee engagement and increases the likelihood of empty shifts getting covered.

Workforce.com drives profitability in a couple of ways. For one, it helps you fill empty shifts quickly so that you are never leaving revenue on the table due to understaffing.
