As an organisation, you may base your staffing hours on a rostering platform whereby you allocate employees' certain hours they need to work per week based on workload demands. By using rostering software, you can take the heavy administration out of this process for your managers, freeing up their time to work on more important areas such as managing and supporting their employees.
The Rostering module within the payroll platform has a Budgeting feature that allows you to create a budget that you can use to manage shift costs within your organisation. You can also use this feature to edit the costing information if they change and delete a record if it is no longer required.
- Click the Roster menu.
- Click the Roster Actions button.
- Click the Budget button.
- Click the Edit Budget tab.
- Select the budget location from the Select a Location drop-down.
- Complete the following fields:
- Select a location.
- Budget Settings.
- Select a week.
The Blue Arrow button will copy the entered data into the fields below it. The payroll platform calculates the budget figure for each date by applying the wages percentage to the recorded sales number for that day.
- Click the Save button.
Only when you enable the Pay Condition Rule Set for an employee will the payroll platform display an individual's shift cost. You can also use the Show Costs toggle switch to turn on or off the display of shift costs in your rostering view.
So you have now managed your roster budgets and you are now wondering, what next can I do. There are two recommendations I would make on this front and they are:
- How do I enable shift notifications for an employee | Payroll FAQ This FAQ answers a common user question we receive around how do I enable shift notifications.
- Setup and manage rostering roles | Payroll Web Platform This feature allows you to create a roster group such as front of house serving staff that you can then assign to your employees when entering their shift details.
