Capture Shift Engagement from Team Members 😁😐😕

What's new

Shift Engagement is a simple way for your team members to be heard and for managers to track team engagement and take action. 

We are looking to help you:

Capture team engagement 🤳- As team members clock out of their shift on mobile, they will get a question on how they are feeling? They can choose from Excited, Happy, Okay, Frustrated & Stressed. They can also leave a comment, all captured anonymously. 

Track & take action 📊 - A detailed report to help keep track of your team's shift engagement trend & view feedback to take action.

How can I be the first to try this?

This feature is entering its Beta phase, which means we would love to get some more feedback before making this available for general release. Customers can also expect small bugs and user interface issues that need to be addressed in a follow-up release. 

If you are keen to try it out with your team, simply register your interest 👉here

Manage your part-time staff's agreed working hours

What's new

  • Set agreed working hours, by allocating the number of hours your part-time staff will work for the week

  • Create and assign work periods, to customise agreed working hours to suit your unique business rostering cycles


  • Better manage overtime through selecting when overtime payments kick if an employee exceeds their agreed working hour limit

Why

In Australia, managers do not have a way to manage part-time employee’s agreed working hours to ensure they are getting the correct overtime pay. Part-time awards follow the full-time award rule for overtime, which is usually 38 or 40 hours. This means if a PT worker is contracted to work 35hrs a week, their overtime rate will not apply until 38 or 40 hrs, which provides incorrect pay for part-time workers.

What's next

  • 2-weekly & 4-weekly work periods 
  • Managers will be able to specify the agreed days and times for an employee
  • Scheduling enhancements, get alerts when you’re scheduling employees over the agreed hours
