Work Schedules We have now learned about the following: Job Design Job Simplification Job Enlargement Job Enrichment Job Categories Full-time Part-time Seasonal Flex-time Job Sharing
Schedules How do managers decide who works when? What do they need to consider when creating a work schedule? What are some factors a manager may need to consider when they are creating a weekly, or bi-weekly work schedule?
Things a Manager Must Consider Managers have to consider the following factors when developing a work schedule: Hours available Hours allowed per worker Busy times of day = more employees needed How many employees will be working Rest and Lunch breaks Overtime opportunities Statutory Holidays
What Shifts Do I Need? Exactly what shifts will you need? Examples A retail store might base their coverage on the number of customers they expect to service during a given time frame A call center might base their shifts on call volume (when do the expect the most incoming calls?) Industry/Factories use a 9 80 work schedule – 80 hours of work in 9 business days, providing every other Friday off
Who Should I Select to Work? Who is available to work? Students can be difficult to schedule based on class/school schedules and extra curricular activities Who works well with others? Some employees do not work well together Who has the right skill for the shift? You need someone with the proper training for the task- e.g. Cashier, salesperson, etc.
How Much Can I Spend? Organizations budget an amount that is to be used on wages Retail stores determine budgets based on previous sales Factories just need the job to be filled Is someone who earns less more valuable to a company?
Break Time Employers must schedule employees for breaks – against the law not to Some breaks are paid, some are not – depends on the company Some companies determine when you will take your break. E.g. Bell City Auto Center – 10am, 12pm, 2:45pm. Some companies allow employees to decide when break will be taken Retail stores – employees must ensure that someone is covering their area/department
Overtime Employees can not be forced to work overtime, however employers prefer when employees choose to work overtime Hourly wage employees will be paid for overtime work – time and a half, etc. Salary paid employees have to give up free time Some employers will ask employees to come in and work overtime Some employers will post overtime hours and allow employees to claim them
Statutory Holidays Statutory Holidays are paid days off for all employees celebrating the following: New Year’s Day Good Friday Canada Day Labour Day Christmas Day Full wage must be paid on these days Other holidays require businesses to pay employees extra for working when open: Easter Monday, Victoria Day, Thanksgiving, and Boxing Day
