Sifting through the thousands of available work schedules leaves many managers lost as to what is the best shift schedule. After all, there is no one-size-fits-all schedule that works for all organizations. In this white paper, we outline best practices for finding the best shift schedule for your organization, including information on balancing:
- Business goals
- Workload requirements
- Shiftworker lifestyle preferences
- Family and social needs of employees
- Biological factors
We will also review the scientific evidence regarding important schedule features.
