4 Steps to Address No-Shows Because Employees Didn’t See the Schedule

We all know what it’s like when an employee does not show up for work unexpectedly. It can make a shift disproportionately difficult for others on the team who take up the slack.

How Nonprofits Schedule Volunteers

How Nonprofits Schedule Volunteers

Even if you don’t have many full-time or part-time employees at your nonprofit, you actually have a lot in common with companies that do. You likely have a small army of volunteers that keep you just as busy (if not more so) as paid employees would.


Let me guess: scheduling those volunteers is one of your top headaches. See? You do have something in common with for-profit companies with staff, after all!


Most nonprofits are strapped for time and money, and while you rely on your volunteers to alleviate some of the workload, sometimes it’s more stress to juggle their constant schedule changes.

Do you remember how long ago it was when the Internet made it imperative for businesses of all types to have a website, build a marketing presence and begin combining online strategies with traditional advertising methods? Better yet, do you have any idea when the idea of “smart” devices came into play requiring these same businesses to yet again re-think their way of reaching customers through the use of mobile websites and mobile apps? Since websites, smartphones and tablets have managed to become a required part of our daily lives, it’s no doubt that every single business owner, who wants to succeed anyway, knows the importance of not only online software, but also taking the steps to incorporate it into everyday business practices.

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?
