STEP 1: The service chief builds and defines the schedule for
the service. The schedule specifies shifts that need to be filled,
requirements for filling these shifts, times of the shifts, days of the
week on which shifts occur and other parameters to clearly detail the
needs of the scheduling service.
||Services all over
the country hire per diem employees. Every service is different and
every service has its own staffing needs. But one thing they all
have in common is the massive task of putting schedules together and
keeping everyone informed of schedules and upcoming needs.
Typically, per diem employees submit their availability
to someone who has been assigned to put together the schedule. Often
this is done on a monthly basis but in some cases, it is weekly,
quarterly, or on some other frequency depending on the needs of the
service. Employees often submit their availabilities in a non
standard fashion. Some fill out forms, some call in their
availability, some send e-mail, etc. The scheduler is often left
buried under a pile of scraps of paper which must be sorted through to
determine who is able to work which shifts. It is a daunting task which
they seldom look forward to tackling. The monthly task of putting
the schedule together is postponed until the last minute and then it
consumes hours of tiring, tedious work to finish and publish in a timely
manner. It is frustrating for the scheduler and the per diem
employees as well.
The GoPerDiem web site brings order to a chaotic
chore. It streamlines the process of submitting availability by the
employees and reduces a massive scheduling task to a simple point and
click process taking a fraction of the time required by manual
methods. Many users have reported as much as a 90% reduction in time
needed to produce the schedule. Employees report they are able to
submit their availability without having to fill out forms and drop them
off at the office. They can submit times from home or work, anywhere
they have access to the internet. Even if they are on vacation out
of state. The use of forward thinking and cutting edge technology
makes the entire process simple.
Let's face it, time is money. Any task that can be
systemized and streamlined in such a way as to save time, saves
money. Not only that, users report greater employee satisfaction
when scheduling information is presented in a clear, organized and timely
fashion. Employees perceive services who use technology to their
advantage to be progressive and therefore a more desirable place to
work. Their time is important to them and many need scheduling
information quickly so their other activities can be scheduled. Many
work for more than one service and make commitments more readily when
prompt response is provided for their availability input.
Other features of the GoPerDiem service save time and
money by avoiding duplicate scheduling, missed shifts, and unclear
communication of work schedules. GoPerDiem can even alert you to
conflicts and help avoid scheduling of overtime hours by alerting you when
you are about to overbook an employee.
