Frustrated Employees

Suncrest Assisted Living has a labor force of 23 including on-site nurses and caretakers, aides, administrative staff, and housekeeping workers. A small on-site staff means schedules aren’t very flexible and have little room to absorb change, which takes place frequently.

Unplanned schedule changes resulted in a time-consuming process of sending emails and texts to all qualified staff members to find a replacement. Managers were often required to coordinate fractional shift changes to adapt to overlapping availabilities. The result was a domino effect that often caused unanticipated consequences including costly overtime and coverage gaps. The extra burden, added confusion, and personal disruption was taking a toll.

SOLUTION — WorkforceHUB

• TimeSimplicity for simplified assisted living staff scheduling and mobile coordination.
• TimeWorksPlus for integrated time and attendance tracking.
• Mobile access provides employee access and management control.

Suncrest needed a simple solution that managers and other team members could use without the need for a lot of additional training. TimeSimplicity delivered exactly that, with the additional power of drag-and-drop scheduling, easy schedule change management, and employee self-help tools that empower employees to solve scheduling dilemmas with ease.

With WorkforceHUB, Suncrest was able to set up their scheduling in about fifteen minutes by logging each employee name, job code, and availability. Once that was done, designing employee schedules became a quick matter of drag-and-drop. Scheduling conflicts, unexpected overtime, and adequate shift coverage are no longer a hassle with built-in notifications that warn supervisors before a problem occurs.

When it comes to finding help due to schedule changes, the Suncrest team no longer goes into panic mode; employees can enter their availability to pick up hours, and trading shifts between staff members is as simple as trading cards. Managers only need to approve swaps for stress-free schedule revisions.

One of the most popular features for Suncrest is the ability to empower team members with mobile access. With the Employee Self Service (ESS) portal, team members are able to view their schedule, request time off, check accruals, and review their time cards. They no longer need to call a supervisor for basic information and time card accuracy has improved significantly. This is a perfect solution for a community of employees working all hours of the day and a real timesaver for managers.

PBJ Made Easy

All long-term care facilities are now subject to the Payroll Based Journaling (PBJ) regulations. Employers are required to track daily employee shift hours by job description and site as well as staff tenure and turnover. Suncrest uses the built-in Payroll Based Journaling (PBJ) tools in WorkforceHUB to effortlessly track the data and prepare accurate reports. Suncrest supervisors are sleeping better at night knowing that PBJ compliance is automated with StaffMetrix HR WorkforceHUB.
