Findmyshift – Straightforward Staff Scheduling

Whether you run a medical office, a clothing boutique, or a small café, you need employees to work the registers and help out customers during business hours each day. Although the idea of creating work schedules and staff rosters may seem easy at the beginning, the reality of the situation can become daunting once factors like school schedules, maximum work hour limits, and employee vacation days are taken into account.

When you use Findmyshift to create work schedules, you don’t have to worry about all that. All you need to know to use Findmyshift is your employees’ names and the hours your business is open. With Findmyshift, you can create and manage your employees’ work schedules in minutes. Making changes is easy, too, since Findmyshift lets the employees themselves swap shifts at the last minute – upon receiving proper approval and permissions, of course. Check to make sure none of your employees has gone over the 40-hour work limit in a given week by reviewing the schedule, filtered by staff member or facility. Track each employee’s vacation time and sick leave days directly thought the site, as well. You can notify staffers about any scheduling changes via Findmyshift’s messaging system, which sends text messages and emails to staffers instantly.

When the workweek is done, it’s time to export your official schedule data into your payroll system. This not only saves you time, but also decreases the chances that a computation error or manual input error will occur.
