Efficient employee shift scheduling is crucial for the success of any organization. That’s because it ensures adequate coverage, employee satisfaction, no disruptions, and optimal utilization of resources. As a UKG customer, you can take employee shift scheduling optimization to the next level with the CloudApper Solutions Community‘s latest offering: Shift Optimization. Shift Optimization covers three important aspects of shift management – Shift Confirmation, Shift Bidding, and Shift Swapping – all of which are designed to simplify and optimize shift scheduling processes for UKG customers.

That being said, let’s dive deep into how the three solutions of CloudApper’s Shift Optimization revolutionize employee shift management for UKG users and why they should incorporate them.

Shift Scheduling Optimization for UKG Users With CloudApper

Reduce No-Show Events With Shift Confirmation

Whenever employees don’t show up for their shifts without notifying anyone, it can disrupt operations, create staffing gaps, create chaos, and even lead to financial losses. Fortunately, with CloudApper’s Shift Confirmation, UKG customers can proactively prevent the effects of these no-show events effectively. Leveraging AI technology, the solution identifies employees with problematic attendance histories and pings them before their shifts to confirm their availability. Suppose an employee fails to respond within a designated timeframe set by the employer. In that case, automated alerts are sent to the managers, enabling them to take prompt action to ensure adequate coverage. By streamlining the confirmation process, UKG users can avoid chaos, reduce disruptions, and maintain smooth operations – ensuring shift scheduling optimization.

Empower Employees To Bid for Open Shifts

Managing vacation requests and bidding for open shifts can be quite challenging for organizations, especially if proper systems aren’t in place. CloudApper’s Shift Bidding solution simplifies shift bidding for UKG customers easily. The solution automates shift bidding, notifying eligible employees of available open shifts available and allowing them to bid for them. Organizations can also set predefined rules for choosing eligible employees that can consider factors such as seniority, qualifications, and anything else relevant to the job. Shift Bidding not only enhances employee engagement but also optimizes vacation allocation via bidding, ensuring a balanced workload, smoother operations, and shift scheduling optimization.

Simplify Employee Shift Switching Easily

Sudden changes in availability and unforeseen circumstances often require employees to swap shifts. CloudApper’s Shift Swapping solution offers UKG customers a streamlined and hassle-free approach to managing shift exchanges. Employees can initiate swap requests and specify their desired shift and the one they are willing to take in exchange. With real-time visibility into swap requests, managers can make informed decisions, have an idea about ongoing shift switches, maintain optimal shift coverage, and foster a collaborative work environment that prioritizes flexibility.
