We care about people and we care about businesses. We understand that organisations, big and small, have conflicting priorities in their scheduling and sometimes have to choose between making more money, lowering costs and making employees happy. That's why we at Widget Brain passionately work on creating AI that eliminates that choice. If you thought that improving business performance, compliance and employee happiness don’t go hand in hand, think again.
Staffing is one of the most critical influencers of Business Performance. Losing business due to a lack of staff, or a lack of the right skills causes low performance. This effect can even be of different magnitude during the day.
Estimations of the impact vary, but most business claim they would lose up to 6% of the profitability due to a lack of staff on the right moment to serve their customers better.

How to comply with labour laws without spending too much time on scheduling or increasing labour costs? Labour laws differ per country or even per state or municipality, which makes it difficult to keep up to date for large organisations.
On a social level, you also have to work with employee preferences and soft rules. Being scheduled for an afternoon shift after a night shift may not break any labour law, but still lower acceptance.
Complying with these laws, rules and preferences is important to prevent fines, but also to make your employees happier and healthier in a fair and stable work environment.

Make sure you put everything in place to create a happy workforce that goes the extra mile for you. Studies show that happy employees are up to 20% more productive.
For most companies, labour costs are one of the largest operational expenses. Being more efficient reduces these costs and has a big influence on your profit margin. But how do you reduce spending while remaining your service levels? Obviously overstaffing needs to be tackled, but there are more solutions to reduce labour costs:
