Working Time Solutions has developed software solutions that align labour supply and demand very precisely, and a methodology that enables the co-creation of new flexible rosters to the benefit of everyone.
1. The importance of alignment
This alignment is fundamental to what we do. Typically, an outdated, fixed roster system results in periods of non-productive time – during which staff are under-employed – and busy periods with heavy reliance on overtime, contractors or agency workers.
Our team of analysts will work with you and your data to calculate your workforce requirement, potentially down to the minute. We then help you to design new shift patterns that close the gap between supply and demand, and build in additional flexibility so that contingencies can always be met without resorting to peripheral labour.
2. Everyone engaged
Working time change is good for everyone, as it not only leads to improved efficiency and financial savings, but a better work/life balance for employees, with the right number of staff for the work that needs performing at any given moment.
We make sure that everyone understands the benefits and implications of working time change by involving the whole team in the process. The new patterns of work are co-created by management, employees and unions all working together using our purpose-built systems. The software acts as a vehicle for change; it is the tool that enables our engaging, empowering process to deliver benefits right across the organisation.
3. Locking in success
Our software solutions and processes aren’t designed only for short-term gain. Working time change will continue to deliver benefits indefinitely, but only if the principles of flexibility and continuous improvement are locked into your organisation’s culture. The new shifts need to be implemented, then they need to be reviewed and refined as often as necessary – with a continued commitment to flexibility from everyone involved. Continuous review and improvement ensures that patterns and practices change as the business and workforce change.
This alignment, engagement and locking in of benefits is a process we call Lean Employee Resourcing®, or Lean-ER®. It enables us to have ambitious aims: to eradicate dependency on overtime – with its expense and inefficiency – and to help empower your workforce to achieve more satisfying, more flexible shift patterns.
What we offer are workforce planning and management systems fit for the 21st century, that become a vehicle for beneficial change every minute of the working day.
