Is Your Management Style Causing Employee Stress

Every small business manager has a management style, whether he or she knows what it is, or not. A manager’s approach on how to run an operation greatly affects employees’ motivation and willingness to buy into what is being advertised. The most effective managers have a unique ability to vary their styles depending on each employee’s knowledge and ability, the task at hand, time restrictions, and many other unforeseen factors. If you are a manager who has this fortunate skill, you will most likely win over your employees and inspire them to do their best at all times.

The Cause and Cure for Employee Scheduling Headaches

Post-It Note Link to Employee Scheduling Headaches

Post-It Note Link to Employee Scheduling Headaches

Did you know that employee scheduling headaches could have very well originated when the Post-it Note was first launched in the mid-eighties? Back then, before employers started relying on this small, 3-inch yellow square for a majority of their scheduling needs, people used Post-it Notes for a variety of different reasons. Whether it was for simple tasks at work, or in the home, they were found in every drawer and in every office. They were considered so handy because they could stick to things so you wouldn’t lose them and they would remind you of tasks to be completed. But, shall we venture to say that those same individuals probably never thought that little piece of paper would eventually transform the daily life of users across all nations and eventually affect the task of employee scheduling with employers and employees in offices everywhere.

Employee Scheduling Tricks You Should Be Using

Employee Scheduling Tricks

Employee Scheduling Tricks

A small business manager can spend hours in front of an Excel spreadsheet building employee schedules weeks in advance. In fact, some managers are so amazing at this method of employee scheduling that they can schedule staff that aren’t even hired yet! They know who they need. They know when they need them. And, they know how long they need them for.

 

Knowing your employee schedule and being prepared for what will come is a lot easier than not knowing. Knowing in advance you have routine full-time shifts to schedule, several part-time hours to cover, an employee or two with flexible needs, seasonal employees with limited availability and last-minute requests to accommodate is a lot easier than flying by the seat of your pants.

Employee Schedulers Hear Every Excuse

Employee Schedulers Hear Excuses

Employee Schedulers Hear Excuses

Did you have an employee late for work this morning? Or did you hire a recent team member who had a recent doctor’s appointment that was scheduled, but failed to mention it to you? As employee schedulers, even our best employees pull a good excuse from time to time. And while you secretly grin from ear to ear knowing you have caught this employee red-handed, it’s tricky to know exactly how to react or what to say. You may be short staffed, or the employee with an excuse is normally a perfect team member with no past absentees or problems. When you simply don’t know how to communicate or respond under pressure when an employee calls in sick, you probably respond with a hesitant, somewhat concerned statement of “That’s OK. I’ll see you tomorrow.”

Employee Scheduling Software | ScheduleBase

My employee schedule is due again?

It’s a tedious and sometimes frustrating thought, one that usually hits shortly after you just finish scheduling your employees for the current period. It’s time to work your way through yet another employee schedule. And it will happen again and again, and yes, again. Maybe you’ve been unable to finish your other office tasks for the week? Or it’s quite possible employee scheduling is simply taking longer than it used to because you’re not motivated or organized? Perhaps responding to a voice mail from an employee regarding a schedule change or accommodating a recent schedule request in the form of a Post-it note stuck to your computer screen is a bit more difficult to accomplish this week than it was last week?
