Your roster is more important to your business than you realise. Get it right, your business will perform well, and your employees will be happy. A good staff roster needs to be efficient, fair and well-communicated.

Thankfully the days of pen-and-paper rosters with coffee stains pinned up in your offices are over with rostering software RosterElf.

But here are some tips:


Forget about the people. Focus on the position you need to be filled and at which times throughout the week. Use RosterElf's budgeting tool within the rostering software to ensure you have just enough people where you need them when you need them. Once you are happy, save your template with a name to save you time in the future.


Next, consider your key people and assign them to the most critical shifts. This will ensure you have strong leaders at all times.


Now assign all the other staff to their shifts with a simple click, using RosterElf rostering software's hour calculator to ensure you are sharing the hours best as possible among your team.


Once you have assigned all the positions, hit Next which will take you to the Roster Summary page. Here, you can review how many hours you have given your staff compared with what they have requested. If you need to make any adjustments, go back and update.


RosterElf's rostering software allows you to send comments to your employees and the roster. This is a great way to communicate news, focus areas or business changes.


Once you are 100% happy, select SMS and Email and click Publish. All employees will have their shifts communicated via Email and SMS.

RosterElf makes staff rostering a breeze. Follow these tips with RosterElf, and you will find rostering staff stress will be a thing of the past.
