Keep Cost In Perspective
Incorporating new scheduling practices may seem like a large price tag on the outset, but the long-term benefits easily outweigh the initial cost. By putting high priority on employee quality of life, you are promoting company stability while lowering turnover, recruitment, and training costs. Think outside the box in this regard. Is it effective to sit around with pencil and paper to make a schedule? Or even to stare at the computer and draw up a spreadsheet? Sure, the company didn't spend X number of dollars on software, but how much money did they waste by having someone sit there wasting their time and pulling their hair out trying to make a schedule that works?
