How to create a work rota

A good work rota is an essential tool for an organized company. Rota’s make sure that everybody knows what they are supposed to do and when, and keep the company going when a manager is unavailable. Making a good and understandable rota can be a big burden. To make it easier and more efficient, read this article on how to create a work rota.

Make your rota online

Planning with online rota software can be very beneficial for both company and staff. Online rota’s can be updated easily and can automatically send out a notification to the staff when something changes. These programs can also be interactive by letting the staff add or block out available or unavailable time slots.

Furthermore, most rota systems can be linked to facturation systems. This makes pay-rolling easier. Also, online rota software can be set to give warning when certain situations occur, such as over-staffing or under-staffing on peak hours.

Make a fair rota

A rota can help to make people feel content and appreciated in their job. Give a person too much work or too difficult tasks and they might feel overworked and stressed. Give a person too little or  too easy jobs and they might feel under-appreciated and unhappy. A well balanced rota is the answer.

To increase the happiness of personnel, a rota should be accommodating. A parent who needs to drop-off or pick up a child at school is unhappy when they requested not to be scheduled around those times but still are. It is therefore important to gather the wishes of your personnel and try to accommodate them as much as possible. Remember: unhappy personnel can make or break a company. Keep your workers’ rights in mind while scheduling.

In addition, keep in mind the preferred weekly working hours of the staff and make a fair distribution of the available hours among them. Aim for the same number of hours per person, each week. A stable number of hours can be very pleasant for the staff.

Keep skills in mind

While making a rota, it is important that people with the right skills are on site at the right times. For example: if you forget to schedule the receptionists of a dentist office, it can lead to missed appointments and appointment opportunities. If your industry is shift based, make sure that everyone knows well ahead of time when they need to be on site. Make sure there is enough staff available on peak hours so that both customer and personnel satisfaction can be guaranteed.

Make it easily accessible and readable

A good rota is easily accessible for your staff and managers. It is always clear who has to work and what job they have to do. Online rota’s make it easy for staff to request time off, which will be blocked in their personal calendar. This makes sure that the employee is not scheduled for their leave and the manager gets a notification when trying to schedule someone who is not available, which can avoid conflict on the work floor. Does your personnel work at home a lot? An online rota can be read from a computer so your staff always knows what to do and when to clock in.

Readability is a big plus of an online rota as well. The view can often be changed from listview to calendarview so that it is readable for all employees. Besides, the employee and manager can see all upcoming shifts well ahead of schedule. In this way, there should be no last minute misunderstanding or changes because of scheduling conflicts.
