How to Automate Employee Scheduling At Your Casino

Keeping up with employee time off and vacation requests, shift changes, and schedule changes can be a full-time job. What if you could put employee scheduling on autopilot? Think of what you could do with all this time back in your day. The possibilities are endless…

We don’t have to tell you that scheduling involves many difficulties, time, effort, energy, and money to manage all of it. The good news is that you can automate employee scheduling at your casino.

In this article, we will provide you with some ways to automate employee scheduling at your casino.

5 Benefits of Automating Employee Scheduling

Here are some benefits of automating employee scheduling: 

1. Flexibility 

Every casino operates with different rules, priorities, and logistical conditions. Implementing an automated employee schedule system tailored to your casino department’s specific parameters can streamline the process of auto-scheduling employees to specific departments, tables, or games based on their experience level, skill set, and so on. These parameters can also be adjusted as needs change.

2. Equitable Scheduling

Assignment types, time starts, and part-time usage are distributed among the appropriate employees. Deniable special requests can be given on a first-come, first-serve basis or a previous request/attendance points-based system.

3. Reporting

Never worry about pulling the right reports at the right time or fumbling around with exporting and formatting data into a particular file, document, or template again. Implementing an automated scheduling system also automates the report creation process. Talk about killing two birds with one stone…

4. Ease of Use

By bringing your employee scheduling to the cloud, you no longer have to worry about fishing around for files, digging for documents, or installing software on a series of machines. You can increase ease, accessibility, and flexibility by keeping your employee schedules cloud-based.

5. Security

By putting your employee scheduling on autopilot, you don’t have to worry about accidental changes to employees’ shifts, schedules, or holes in the schedules, ultimately boosting security.

Employees can be made available at all times during their shift, other shifts, or limited to specific times on a whole week or daily basis. Employees can update their shift scheduling preferences and even submit time off requests or make other special requests, all via the employee calendar.
