Retaining diversity is a whole other ballgame

We all know there's value in creating a diverse workforce, yet our political leaders seem to struggle with the basic concept of equality (on so may levels), setting a poor example to the rest of the country. So I read with interest an article in Forbes last month that discussed the importance of changing your workplace to retain a diverse workforce.

The article highlighted something that often gets lost in the conversation. Seeking diversity is the easy part - keeping a diverse group enthused requires real commitment.

TV and Smart 100 Appearances

Shiftiez was in the media during August, placing in the Anthill Smart 100 for 2018 and pitching on That Startup Show discussing workforce scheduling and how to improve the health and happiness of shift workers.

Manage multiple shift times in the one roster

Not all duties are created equal! Some tasks require different start and finish times. Some have multiple shifts per day. Some require overlapping shifts.

HR as the "staff wellbeing" service provider

Personalising an employees experience is being seen as an increasingly important way for companies to manage staff health and engagement.  Changing staff demographics mean  a single staff service offering won't fit the needs of a large diverse workforce.

Where is this heading, and how can you manage the costs of offering service diversity?

The Gap Between HR and Operations

Human Resources at large organisations strain under the lack of accurate information when it comes to short-term planning and the results can be catastrophic for the business and its employees. Ryan Air's COO stood down amidst ongoing controversy with the airline's struggle to manage rosters, leading to the cancellation of flights for over 700,000 travellers. In December last year, a 150 driver shortage at Queensland Rail saw people stranded all over the rail network on Christmas day, ultimately costing the minister in charge his portfolio. Why does this happen, and what's the solution?
