Working Time Solutions specialises in workforce planning and management for emergency services

Working Time Solutions’ approach to workforce planning and management helps Emergency Services to design, implement and manage demand-led crewing rosters.

With many organisations facing budget pressures and staffing shortages, rationalising rosters and ensuring crewing levels accurately reflect demand is essential.

Gaps in labour provision can lead to high reliance on overtime, compromised service levels, employee stress or sickness and breaches of working time or health and safety legislation.

Our approach ensures crewing patterns are flexible and responsive to changing requirements, while maintaining high service standards and improving working conditions.
