By examining the demands on your business and implementing new ways of working, such as annualised hours or other flexible methodologies, productivity gains can be achieved as well as addressing other concerns, such as:
Over reliance on agency workers and/or excessive overtime levels
Wasteful overstaffing when work is slack
High absence levels
Attraction and retention of employees and building partnership
Providing stability to your business and workforce
Burdensome time & attendance exceptions and payroll adjustments
Whatever your issues traditional ways of working are often expensive, inefficient and can even threaten the survival of businesses. Aligning staff to predictable changes in demand, whilst ensuring flexibility for the unknown, is the key to improvement.

We believe that the key to any successful business is to understand and deal with the real demands.
