This is a fast rotating shift pattern that uses 4 teams and two 12-hr shifts to provide 24/7 coverage. Each team works a sequence of 2 day shifts, followed by 2 night shifts, then taking 4 days off in each 8-day period. After 8 days, the same sequence starts over.
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.
