Flexible Workloads are on!
Giving more working flexibility to employees' schedules is a trend, but how should HRs administer it? At flair.hr, we have developed a solution for cases when employees' workload differs week by week or even when there are no repeatable patterns at all.
We called this the "Flexible workload model". To start working with it click "Add new workload" on the employee's page and select Flexible in a workload model field. Now you may set the schedule for one week or set a repeatable pattern of several weeks with varying working day lengths. If an employee's workload has no repeatable pattern - you may save the workload without any template and set the schedule manually later.
After you save the workload, a calendar view will appear with the patterns automatically applied. This calendar is open for editing and lets you consider the occasional updates that may happen to an employee's schedule.
We've also provided some tips that'll help to reduce your manual work even more.
Week templates. You can save any weekly schedule as a template and apply it to either the workload itself or to any week in the calendar.
Workload templates. If the schedule repeats for multiple employees, save the workload as a template and apply it within a click.
