By examining the demands on your business and implementing new ways of working, such as annualised hours or other flexible working methodologies, productivity gains can be achieved as well as addressing other concerns, such as:
• Over reliance on agency workers and/or excessive overtime levels
• Wasteful overstaffing when work is slack
• High absence levels
• Attraction and retention of employees and building partnership
• Providing stability to your business and workforce
• Burdensome time & attendance exceptions and payroll adjustments
Whatever your issues traditional ways of working are often expensive, inefficient and can even threaten the survival of businesses. Aligning staff to predictable changes in demand, whilst ensuring flexibility for the unknown, is the key to improvement.
Time & Work Organisation
We believe that the key to any successful business is to understand and deal with the real demands on all internal processes. Implemented strategically, flexible working can provide a practical way, using concepts such as annualised hours, to help deal with these demands.
External forces such as changes in the market and competition, legislation, the political and economic environment, parent company requirements, etc. are outside the control of management but must be taken on board. These forces translate into internal demands such as customer requirements, performance expectations, unit cost targets, quality and service standards, asset utilisation, operating methods, equipment and process running options, work practices, attendance patterns, culture etc. In addition, employee expectations are a major consideration.Find Out More
