Whether that be through seniority, job position or location, once your rules are set in place, Evolia takes care of finding an optimal replacement for you.
2. Financial Losses
Sometimes, you may need to call on an employee who exceeded their weekly limit of hours.
As a result, you lose more money from overtime, while also paying them a bonus to have them come back to work.
According to Daniel Leduc, a lawyer in employment and labour law :
“Employers can dedicate up to 20% of their payroll solely to direct and indirect costs related to unexpected absences. In addition to occasions when the only available employee will be overqualified, and therefore overpaid, for the work to be done.”
Add to the fact that the only available employee is overqualified for the task at hand so you end up paying more to get the task done.
As a result, your financial losses aren’t limited to payroll but are twofold.
Without the appropriate amount of employees, you can’t satisfy your customers.
If your dissatisfied customers decide not to return to your business, you lose profits as well.
3.Employees Feeling Under Pressure
Nobody likes being under pressure, not even Freddie Mercury.
Last-minute schedule changes can have a serious impact on your employees.
If you can’t find a replacement, it means a heavier workload on your team.
It also means more stress and an increased risk of mistakes and friction between colleagues.
In the long term, high stress can lead to physical and mental health problems such as cardiovascular disease, back pain, anxiety and burnout.
Faced with these problems, your employees may find themselves taking time off work or having no choice but to quit to preserve their own mental and physical well-being.
Forcing you to revisit the vicious cycle of having to find and train a new recruit!
4.Managers Gaining a Bad Reputation
Reputation is everything.
Without the proper management in place, your reputation is at stake.
Think about it: If employees are unhappy with their work hours or have to constantly change them at the last minute, you’re running the risk of building a bad reputation.
Which creates the ripple effect of creating a high employee turnover.
