Employee Engagement

Our consultants are highly experienced in ensuring employees are fully engaged in the workforce planning and management process. 

Shift workers who understand the organisational need for Working Time change and the impact it will have on them personally, can play a pivotal role in arriving at the best solution.

Our WORK Suite® software and services enable employees and unions to engage in the shift planning, scheduling and management process in a transparent, collaborative manner.

To support employee engagement, we can help you to:

  • Articulate the need for change using demand planning data and analysis
  • Demonstrate employee-centric best practice to unions
  • Involve the workforce in the shift pattern design process using visual and interactive software tools
  • Communicate effectively throughout the change process using staff surveys, working groups, educational sessions, working parties and focus groups
  • Promote transparency and fairness in design and evidence positive impact on stable pay, job protection and creation, work-life balance and health and wellbeing

Providing clarity and engaging employees during a workforce optimisation project promotes understanding of the drivers and process behind Working Time change.

We will help you to create cultural conditions that support the initial change and encourage continuous improvement, strengthening your organisations’ ability to quickly respond to new challenges and opportunities.
