We identify common causes of excessive hours, evidence the impact and look at how to tackle overworking
Working Time Solutions designed shift patterns for the Maritime & Coastguard Agency which ensured it could efficiently meet variations in demand across time frames (days, weeks, years) and diverse geographical operating patches.
Through efficient use of employees’ contracted hours, this emergency service was able to remove periods of significant underutilisation and reduce long shifts.
By modelling demand and designing optimised shift patterns, the organisation was able to reduce labour costs, whilst protecting vital skills and maintaining service levels.
