Whether you go digital or not is most likely now a moot point for your employees. Long are the days when employees found key information from a piece of paper on the noticeboard or even waited in line to speak to the manager, an easy way to empower your team is to let them have control and visibility through their mobiles.
How? Digital rota systems, like CoolCare, switches your manager from reactive mode, it makes daily challenges such as managing the short-notice illness, and annual leave requests a thing of the past – the request process and authorisation can be done at the touch of a button.

Technology delivers smart solutions that take the hard work out of everything. From accessing online training courses or trying to remember extra shifts available for cover – all of this can fit in the palm of your employees’ hands, through the online portals. It makes life easier for your teams to stay updated, but it also cuts the time and human resources needed to physically find files and have a phone around to update people in person.
In a world where truth and transparency are becoming ever more important, having an easy-to-use platform that lets your rota manager pop shifts that need filling out to everyone at the same time gives equal earning opportunity across the team. It creates a sense of common purpose across the team and can dramatically reduce the need to turn to bank staff. As well as protecting your bottom line, you’re also ensuring that your residents are more likely to see faces they know every day.
It’s easy to think that having increased automation means that you’re missing out on the critical points of communication that create the heart of your team. However, by giving staff access through their smartphones and home laptops, you’re freeing up time to catch up with them about how they’re feeling and spend time making sure that they’re feeling valued and part of the team.
