This shift pattern supports the standard 4/10 compressed work schedule. Two teams are required, with each team working 10 hours a day for 4 straight days. Team 1 works Monday to Thursday while Team 2 works Tuesday to Friday.
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.
