Optimal communication with employees

This app allows employees to have direct insight into their personal schedule. It also enables them to easily apply for leave and view their current leave balance. Should any employees be unavailable for one of their scheduled shifts, they can file a request for a shift swap. Their co-workers will then be able to swap the shift with them, pending your approval. Moreover, any employees who are in school can input their school schedule as well. In short, everything will be available in a centralised location, thanks to our app. Our R&R job app contributes to optimal communication with your employees.

Work schedules

Do you want to provide your employees with easy insight into their work schedules? If so, use our R&R job app. As soon as you finalise your employees’ schedules in R&R WFM, they will automatically be inputted in the R&R job app. Employees will then be able to view their own schedule for the relevant weeks. And rest assured; if you make any changes to their schedules in the meantime, these changes will automatically be inputted in the schedules in the job app as well. In short, the app will always provide your employees with the most current version of their schedules.

School

If any of your employees are still of school-going age or still attend school, they will be able to input (and if necessary, change) their school schedules in the R&R job app. The number of hours they are legally permitted to work is then determined in accordance with their school schedule. Moreover, you will know exactly when your employees will be available and when they will be in school. Do you want to know more about our R&R job app? It makes things easier for both you and your employees.

Leave

Did you know that our job app will enable your employees to easily file for leave? They simply click ‘Leave’ followed by ‘Application’ in the job app to file their application. They can only file for leave that starts at least 14 days later, to ensure that the leave can be incorporated into the schedule. Once the supervisor has approved the application, the employee will receive notification thereof in the app, and their leave will automatically be processed in R&R WFM, preventing you from having to do any repeat work.

Leave balance

Do your employees frequently ask you for their current leave balance? This question will become obsolete when using the R&R job app! This app enables employees to easily view their own current leave balance in number of hours, ensuring they know exactly how many hours they have left. Easy does it! The app also enables them to file for leave. You are then able to approve the application, which will automatically be incorporated into R&R WFM as well.

Swapping shifts

Do you frequently deal with employees who request changes to their schedule? Our app allows employees to easily swap shifts, up to 72 hours before the start of said shift. Here’s how:

The relevant employee offers up a shift for swapping.
Our R&R job app then checks which other employees meet the following requirements:

1) Who is available?

Some people will already be scheduled at the relevant time or will have indicated that they are unable to work at that time. These are out.

2) Who is the same age?

It makes sense to replace any one employee with someone of the same age. Thus, our app checks the available employees’ ages.

3) Who is capable of working at the relevant department?

A shift swap can only be finalised if the replacement is capable of working at the relevant department. Our app checks such capability as well.

The employees who meet all three requirements receive the original employees offer. They can then indicate whether they are willing to take on the shift. As supervisor, you will then receive an overview of the employees who are willing to take on the shift. The system also checks whether after including the relevant shift, these employees will still satisfy the requirements of the Dutch act on working hours. You then simply choose the employee best able to replace the employee offering the shift, or instead deny the employee’s offer. Your response will automatically be processed in R&R WFM and communicated to the relevant employees.

Advantages of the shift-swapping functionality?

  • As supervisor, you maintain control and a comprehensive overview of the schedule
  • It enables employees to quickly and easily swap shifts makes it easy
  • The schedule is automatically adjusted and shared with the relevant employees
  • It enables you to involve your employees in the scheduling process more
