This is a fixed (no rotation) shift pattern that uses 3 teams working 24-hr shifts to provide 24/7 coverage. Each team repeats the following sequence over a 63 day period: 1 day on, 1 day off, 1 day on, 1 day off, 1 day on, 4 days off.
When emergencies arise and an employee needs to take a few days off, it can be a challenge finding a replacement to ensure adequate shift coverage while taking into consideration time-off constraints, union, labor and overtime rules, employee availability, skills, preferences, etc. Snap Schedule 365 employee scheduling software solves these challenges and help companies build smarter schedules, avoid unnecessary overtime, and always know who is working where and when.
