New approaches to managing the workforce can be unsettling to your line employees. Change is often a tough pill to swallow. Automating your scheduling process, by definition, can appear de-humanizing – ‘I’m scheduled by a black box!’ Actually, if handled correctly, union members come to embrace this technology. Why? Because it is consistent (fair) in the application of the contract. It is accessible to everyone, regardless of their shift. It is able to provide an ‘audit’ of every assignment it makes. You are ‘known’ to the scheduling system by your skills alone. What’s not to love?
