How does your organisation manage the workforce?

office

I came across the article today: “Staff rotas face tech revolution.” which highlights a revolution that we have been addressing for quite some time but we support none the less. It doesn’t matter what industry you are in, there is no avoiding the tasks enforced on an organisation by Workforce Management, with Staff Planning being one of those most prominent.

When was the last time you did a fire drill?

Fire Drill

Fire risk and understanding what to do in the event of one occurring when at work should be a priority to all employers and employees.
