Shiftiez takes our user feedback seriously. At a visit to a client site last year we were shown the challenge of accounting for lots of staff changes as holiday season approached. Entering in leave was a time consuming process - so we fixed it.
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.
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.
A new feature in Shiftiez lets you copy the roster pattern from the previous week with one click. Building your roster now takes just seconds to prepare.
Not all duties are created equal! Some tasks require different start and finish times. Some have multiple shifts per day. Some require overlapping shifts.

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?
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?
