Working Time Solutions specialises in workforce planning and management for fieldforce organisations

Working Time Solutions’ approach to workforce planning and management helps organisations with a mobile workforce to design shift patterns and rosters that respond to fluctuating demand.

Creating a fully optimised field force ensures that organisations can achieve the highest levels of customer service without over-staffing whilst minimising the use of overtime and external contractors.

We work with a wide range of organisations with field force services to create optimised shift patterns that overcome efficiency challenges in their operation.

By aligning shift patterns with customer demand, we ensure your workforce can handle increased workloads within their contracted hours.

Our technology improves transparency, ensuring overtime, banked/reserve hours and shift swaps are managed fairly, effectively and consistently and that both rosters and actual hours worked are compliant with Working Time regulations.

We also work closely with employees and unions to create flexible shift patterns that, not only increase productivity, but reduce overworking and create a good work-life balance for mobile workers or field engineers.

We’ve helped a wide range of organisations with field force operatives:
