Canonical Information

Platform Challenge and Solution

Platform Challenge: As millennials make up more of your workforce, they want more control in their lives and want to easily self-manage their schedules. Managers want to reduce the time it takes to manage this process as long as the contact center runs efficiently.

Platform Solution: Give employees the control they want. The right web application empowers employees to self-manage their schedules through business rules. Employees can request time off, submit schedule preferences, and manage exceptions — without going through a supervisor or planner.

The following benefits are based on benchmark information captured from Genesys customers and may vary based on industry or lines of business:

Qualifying Questions

  1. How does your organization manage operational efficiency and employee engagement?
  2. How do your employees manage their schedules and tasks?
  3. How do Supervisors manage coverage of schedules, constraints and labor laws?

Pain Points (Business Context)

  • Employees arriving late for their shift must manually find a way to make up the time
  • Supervisors and Planners need to make manual adjustments to the employees schedules to account for employee lateness or other partial day absences
  • Employees do not have options as to how they can make up for lost time due to lateness or early departure

Desired State - How to Fix It

  • Allow employees to interact directly with their schedule to indicate how they will pay back the time they had to deduct.
  • Allow employees to choose whether to pay back time via extending the current day's schedule, extending a future day's schedule, or reduce the length of an unpaid meal instead of using personal time off they have accrued.
