Introduction and challenges
In line with economic and regulatory requirements, companies must adapt their management of employees’ time and activities. Since activity levels are changing and the demand for responsiveness is high, and employees are absent unexpectedly, it is imperative to precisely forecast activity to adapt the organisation. Workforce optimisation is a strategic tool to anticipate and distribute tasks every day, to make workloads variable and adjust them in real time.
While recording team activity allows the identification of free time to reassign or save time, it also provides a key database to measure the value of time used and to take operational decisions to reassign available time.
This relevant and precise data is then aggregated to forecast the annualisation of the workload, and calibrate and anticipate staffing needs, as well as schedules. Workforce optimisation makes it possible, for example, to avoid replacements due to sick leave, to reassign someone to a new activity or to identify the need of an interim contract.
