Workforce Ready Scheduler

Put the right person in the right place at the right time.

Create schedules that align staffing requirements with budget and demand.

Workforce scheduling can be time-consuming, error-prone, and frustrating. Trying to schedule a diverse workforce using spreadsheets and semi-automated systems can result in overstaffed shifts, shorthanded rushes, excessive overtime, employee disengagement, and even compliance issues. How can you schedule the right person with the right skills in the right place at the right time without overspending your budget or burning out your employees?

Make more informed, cost-effective scheduling decisions.

Workforce Ready Scheduler - Feature 1

Advanced scheduling tools help you better manage labour spend

Kronos Workforce Ready® Scheduler automatically generates best-fit schedules based on your organisation’s unique requirements to help control labour costs, minimise compliance risk, improve productivity, and drive employee engagement. Easy-to-use tools and automated workflows simplify creation of best-practice schedules that align staffing with budget and demand. Automatic enforcement of scheduling rules and policies helps avoid employee grievances, litigation, and files.

Workforce Ready Scheduler - Feature 2

Build efficient schedules that support compliance

Once you’ve created your schedule, fill open shifts to maximise productivity and minimise compliance risk. The system automatically sorts employees based on predefined criteria — availability, preferences, skills, certifications, union rules, labour laws and more — so you can assign the right person to each position. You’re automatically notified if scheduling actions violate established rules so you can make changes and maintain compliance. 

Workforce Ready Scheduler - Feature 3

Make intelligent staffing decisions on the fly

Real-time visibility into the workforce allows you to handle staffing changes on your own terms to control labour costs without jeopardising productivity or service levels. Need to fill an open shift due to an unplanned absence? Forget about paying unnecessary overtime or hiring contract workers. Workforce Ready Scheduler automatically generates a prioritised call list of qualified workers based on availability, seniority, skill set, and more, so you can fill shifts with the right person at the right cost.

Workforce Ready Scheduler - Feature 4

Empower employees and boost engagement

Give employees more control over their schedules for improved engagement. Self-service tools empower employees to be more autonomous while making the scheduling process more transparent. For example, employees can pick up open shifts based on their qualifications — from their desktop or mobile device — and receive email notification whenever a new schedule is posted. 

Boost productivity and drive compliance.

With Workforce Ready Scheduler, you can now solve the puzzle of scheduling — matching up availability, skills, and business demand to create an efficient, effective schedule that helps maximise productivity and maintain compliance while minimising spend.
