Intrigued? You’re not alone! E-rostering has been a major shift in the workforce management industry. The best way to understand it, though maybe by talking with someone who’s already using an electronic rostering system – or “ERS” for short (a term that seems so much more professional than ‘electronic roster’).
Electronic rostering systems are an efficient way to manage when staff need to work. They enable managers to build their rosters, define the number of employees needed and ultimately improve productivity through better management; this saves money because there’s no waste from having people on standby or unnecessary overtime pay if they’re not designated as needing time off during any given shift(s). Trusts also have more flexibility with how they handle staffing–employees get less stressed.
Interchangeable with paper-based rostering, eRosters are an efficient way of managing when staff need to work. With electronic rosters, managers can quickly build their own roster by defining the number of employees needed for different demands within their organisation. This can also be based in skill sets; this ultimately improves productivity and makes significant savings through better management practices like accurate pay reflecting completed tasks
Employees who want more flexibility in choosing what time they come into the office may also benefit from using eRoster Systems because it provides options regarding which days workers will be available each week or month based on availability rather than being scheduled simply according to shift pattern.
