Ground Staff Scheduling
Turn the Tides of Time:
Where Shift Revolution Meets Employee Engagement
In a sector where every moment counts toward profitability, subpar staff scheduling just won't cut it. This is why SkyRoster is tailor-made for your unique challenges, delivering optimized and intelligent workforce planning.
Craft seamless rosters directly within the app. With on-the-spot dashboards, you can harness data to make instantaneous, informed choices that drive efficiency. And when the unexpected occurs, SkyRoster adapts effortlessly, maintaining the rhythm and effectiveness of your operations.
The challenges you face with manual ground staff crew scheduling:
Volume of Data: There is a significant number of ground staff members with varying roles, qualifications, and preferences. Managing the data manually is labor-intensive and prone to errors.
Regulatory Compliance: Ground staff often have strict working hour regulations, mandated breaks, and other labor rules. Ensuring compliance with these rules while manually creating a schedule is complex.
Staff Preferences: Accounting for individual preferences, such as days off, preferred shifts, and vacation requests, further complicates scheduling.
Unforeseen Circumstances: Delays, weather disruptions, equipment malfunctions, or sudden staff shortages can disrupt a carefully planned schedule. Manual rescheduling for such events is time-consuming.
Training and Qualifications: Ground staff may have different qualifications and certifications. Ensuring that only qualified staff are scheduled for specific tasks requires meticulous attention to detail.
Cost Efficiency: Managing overtime, ensuring that shifts are covered without incurring unnecessary expenses, and making cost-effective decisions is hard to accomplish manually.
Fatigue Management: Ensuring that staff members are scheduled for only a few consecutive shifts or hours is crucial for safety and efficiency.
Equity: Ensuring that prime shifts, holidays, and preferred hours are distributed fairly among all staff can be challenging and can lead to dissatisfaction if not managed well.
What makes SkyRoster unique for your staff?
The SkyRoster's engine generates workforce rosters that take into account fatigue management rules and all pre-defined legal requirements. The platform helps to minimize the time to build the schedule, considering ground staff preferences, days worked and possible unexpected changes.
Organise the structure with a digital contract that outlines employees' roles in departments or teams. Having all this information in one place will help get rid of paper files and make it easier to share between different HR platforms.
You can set up validities based on predefined parameters if you would like to be kept updated about when certain conditions are met. You can also color-code thresholds to help yourself become more aware of them. If you want to be notified each time a point is reached, you can do so via email, in-app, or push notification on the SkyRoster mobile application.
SkyRoster helps you define different types of leaves and deduct days from the annual vacation allowance accordingly. But it does much more than that. It lets you manage non-shift duty work within the same staff roster, for example, or allow employees to make requests from anywhere. They can also convert overtime to extra time off and eliminate those troublesome spreadsheets once and for all.
Configure shift types and working hours to match your needs and color code them for easy identification. Define clockwise or counterclockwise rotation patterns as a sequence of predefined shift types. Highly optimized and easily extensible constraint-based rostering engine will allow both automatic and manual assignments of shifts to employees.
Everything is at one click distance. The integrated calendar lets everyone manage the work schedule and keep track of the requests. This feature allows a simple overview of the remaining vacation days, extra allowance earned from on-duty shifts (training, overtime), and preferred days to work fulfilled by the rostering engine.
Build custom reports on different shifts, leave and duty requests, swap requests, hours on position for every qualification, and fulfilled desired and undesired days to work. Visualize reports using the built-in visualizations and charts to understand your data better.
