What’s the specialty about our EPOS Systems
Shift management is an important aspect of business, and for business owners to neglect this means to neglect the well-being of both their business and their employees. But what most people don’t know, especially those outside the retail industry, is that retail stores usually don’t know how to manage their people and their shifts. This leads to a factory-like scheduling wherein employees are forced to work up to 16 hours because the management doesn’t know how to handle or manage the shifts properly.
But why is it important to manage the shifts properly?
First, there’s this thing called OVERLAPPING wherein a business would lose money because of poor shift management. The payroll, which can become a blessing and a curse for the business owner, can be detrimental when there are so many overtimes being paid to employees. Overlapping happens when one employee still continues to work even when his or her substitute has arrived. Another concept of overlapping is when an employee doesn’t inform the management of their absence or leave and the substitute has to work a double shift (his own shift and the shift of the one he/she replaced). With good shift management, overlapping can be avoided.
Why you should care about EPOS Systems
When you don’t pay attention to shift management, you neglect the well-being of your employees. Human beings are finite beings and as such, we can only spend so much time and energy in our workplace. Sure, you’ll find workaholics burning the midnight oil in various offices but this is not always a guarantee that this is healthy and productive. The after-effects of having to work an 18-hour shift can be devastating on the human body. Your body will be fatigued. Your cells won’t be able to regenerate and most of all, your brain will be just too tired to function. There are some instances wherein someone who worked a 24 hour shift (like nurses and doctors) will be knocked out for up to 2 days because the body needed time to recover.
For retail employees , working more than 8 hours a day is something that they find normal. They’d start their day by opening the store and they’d end the day when they would close the store. Sometimes, 12 hours is the norms, with breaks in between of course. But when is 12 hours going to be productive for anyone? Your body will be fatigued. Your cells won’t be able to regenerate and most of all, your brain will be just too tired to function. There are some instances wherein someone who worked a 24 hour shift (like nurses and doctors) will be knocked out for up to 2 days because the body needed time to recover
Shift management should never be neglected because it will not only prevent you from losing money but it will also help you take care of your employees.…
