Schedule by Skill –Put the Right People in the Right Jobs
Do you know –when making a schedule –which employees are best suited for certain jobs? Can you build out theschedule based on these particular skills?
Serving food to a senior in memory care requires a different skill set than serving food to one who is still independent. The same goes for nurses, housekeepers, and even maintenance workers in some cases.
Scheduling at assisted living facilities is about so much more than meeting required patient to staff ratios. Scheduling by skill helps avoid all sorts of problems, because you now have confidence that the person working a particular shift is the best person for that job.
That means reduced complaints, reduced incidents, happier staff, and happier residents.
This is the bread and butter of Schedule Ease. We call it ‘skill-based assignment scheduling.’ It is revolutionary. Why?
Because it goes far beyond the shaky scheduling approach most places rely on. What if someone wants to swap shifts? With Schedule Ease, you won’t accidentally switch a highly skilled worker with a lower skilled one for a critical job. When a highly skilled worker calls in sick or needs some time off, you’ll be able to fill their slots with similarly capable workers. When a new resident arrives, you will have the right team on hand to familiarize them with the facility.
