Your People. Your Customers. Your Business.
Scheduling your workforce is not an easy task, but it can be. With a cloud-based workforce management platform, you can have one source of truth that provides a holistic view of your people, projects and more. You might be thinking “Great, but I don’t want everyone to see the same information.”
You’re right — not everyone should have the same view. Your people in the field might need to only see their project at hand, their specific schedule for that week and what’s next. Your staff in the office might need to see more — who’s where, what are they working on and when will they be done. Your leadership team wants to see everything so they can forecast, learn from previous project success and failures and plan accordingly.
From a high level, there’s already three groups of people that need various levels of access. With a digital workforce management platform, you can structure groups and set permissions on who can see what and have controlled transparency.
Employee Scheduling: Workforce Management Software
Managing your workforce through a digital solution can open new doors you didn’t know existed. By sharing selective sets of information with different groups of employees, you foster a collaborative spirit that leads to workforce development and open lines of communication.
Workforce Tracking and Project Management
No matter what level a person in your organization is at, you want them to feel appreciated, taken care of and well informed. From clocking-in and seeing their upcoming schedule to managing a specific project, everyone has different responsibilities within your company. If you lock this project data in a whiteboard or spreadsheet, you’re maintaining control, but you’re also preventing your people from communication, collaborating and innovating. You’re essentially blocking your organization from growing and reaching new levels of success. With a cloud-based workforce management platform like LaborChart, you can still have control of who sees what while also bridging the gap between office and field employees.
You don’t have to give up control to improve transparency. Reach out to book a demo and see how controlled transparency can help your company succeed.
