Employee scheduling software helps employers administer their staffing needs with employees. This includes scheduling, budgeting, managing compliance, and communication all through a single platform.
“The majority of our employees are in the Paylocity app every single day and can check their schedule from wherever they are. With Paylocity, everything they need is in one stop.”
“California has state-specific and mandatory requirements that we need to follow. It can be a lot, but if you have the right system in place, that can make all the difference.”
Streamline your Scheduling
Nearly 60% of workers in the U.S. are hourly employees and we have the tools to support them. Managing staffing needs with budget and skills, juggling spreadsheets and bulletin boards, communicating scheduling changes – just making sure employees are in the right place at the right time feels like a massive production! Add in the need to stay compliant and…well, scheduling becomes a full-time job. The good news is it doesn’t need to be.
