For employees that do not typically have their own office, desk, or computer, accessing and sharing information on the job can be difficult. Workers are left to rely on outdated manual processes, such as printing off paper schedules or relying on text messages and phone calls to relay information. Microsoft StaffHub was created to address this exact issue and works as a new application for Office 365, allowing staff workers to better manage their workday. StaffHub provides them with schedule management, information sharing, and the capability to connect other work-related resources and apps.
The app itself has a home screen that provides a summary of all upcoming shifts. Managers can quickly attach important notes for the employees that will show up on the home screen. Workers can view who else is working a particular shift, so that when a scheduling issue arises, they can be easily remedied with Microsoft StaffHub. Employees can swap shifts or offer them to someone else. These requests are also sent to management, for approval purposes, and any notifications/updates are then automatically sent out to the workforce.
Microsoft StaffHub also provides managers the capability to quickly send out important information to their team. This can include new policy documents, news bulletins, or videos. Management can send quick messages to their employees, in a reliable way, and know that it was read. Whether it be a message about a meeting, or information concerning the work day, Microsoft StaffHub provides a way for employees to communicate more effectively as an entire workforce. Managers have complete flexibility, as they easily create and update shift schedules for their employees, through the use of Microsoft StaffHub. Employees are then able to access any information regarding their shifts, which includes the capability to swap shifts with other employees, via the Microsoft StaffHub mobile app. This simplifies the complicated system of adjusting and assigning shifts that might previously have been used by workers.
Antiquated systems regarding managing schedules and relaying information can cease to be used by businesses, thanks to the introduction of Microsoft StaffHub. Now, managers have the capability to easily reach their employees and adjust their schedules in a fast and efficient way. Gone are the days of working off of a paper schedule, posted in an office. Managing workers can now be easily accomplished through the easy use of a cell phone and the mbile app.
