In the many shift-based sectors, ups and downs in production are a given. As seasonal and weekly demand fluctuate, your workforce also needs to scale up and down to maintain efficiency. Outdated and inefficient scheduling processes could be costing your company a lot of time and money.
In this case study, we look at how a packaging company worked with Randstad to implement an automated workforce scheduling system that saved their scheduling team over 18 hours each week. We discuss how Randstad Youplan works and key features such as automated shift planning, and reporting features to track absences, time off requests and other attendance metrics. We also look at key advantages the company experienced, including:
- Cutting the amount of time spent on shift planning by 92%
- Improving work-life balance and transparency for both schedulers and workers
- How time-to-fill rates for shifts dropped to an average of 3 minutes
- Increased flexibility, which allows them to respond to volatility in their industry
