When it comes to growing your business, you can use all the technology and latest tools you want, if your employees are not motivated to do a good job, you won't be getting very far because let's be honest, without them, things not much would be working so well.
Employee scheduling can get quite painful. Managing employees' time, competences, day-offs…all at the same time is a real challenge, no need to say that things can turn out to a nightmare pretty quickly. It is hard to keep track of everything, the more you keep going the tougher it gets. However, employees being your most important resource, it is perhaps time for you to get a little help in order to prevent high turnover and stop losing time and money.
If you are working in project management or have a position that involves scheduling tasks and resources, you probably already heard of the Gantt chart. I used to hear about it but without really knowing its true potential. Scheduling was just scheduling to me, scheduling a task or an employee at a certain period of time to make sure that everything is more or less on time. However, at some point I needed more than scheduling tasks in time.
