Achieve maximum employee performance by scheduling for each individual supermarket

Automated Employee Scheduling for Supermarkets

THE CHALLENGES FOR SUPERMARKETS

Volatile demand in different departments

To make sure products are shelved and customers are attended, you need to staff sufficient people at all times. But how do you identify peak hours from slower periods, especially since they can differ per department and time of the day?

Employee turnover rates are rising

Recent studies found this rate to be as high as 65% for part-time workers. Employees want and demand more flexibility in terms of when they want to work and require a better work-life balance. Retaining trained employees is becoming more difficult.

Ensuring the right people do the right job is not easy

Each department requires different roles and skills. It’s a complex task to manually assign multi-skilled and multi-department shifts. How will you perfectly match the need for qualified employees who are skillful to perform the right jobs in a cost-efficient manner?

Low productivity and high idle time are more prevalent

Certain tasks need to be performed by employees with the right skills. As tasks vary per day, how do you prioritise to ensure smooth handling of operations and all tasks are fulfilled by the right person on time?
