5 Staff Scheduling Tips for Small Businesses

 We've compiled a list of 5 tips to help you, schedule employees, more efficiently. Read below for our top picks!

1. Set up recurring meetings.

If you're running a small business, chances are you'll need to meet with your staff at least once every week. This means you'll need to set aside some time each day to do so. To make sure you're not wasting time scheduling unnecessary meetings, try setting up recurring meetings. You can use Google Calendar to set up recurring events, such as "Staff Meeting" or "Meeting With X."


2. Schedule time for each employee.

It's important to schedule time for each member of your team. This will allow everyone to participate in meetings and ensure that no one feels left out.


3. Don't forget about the holidays.

Holidays are an excellent opportunity to take some time off work. However, it's also important to plan for these days so that you're not caught off guard when they come up. If you need to make changes to your staff schedules, do so as soon as possible.

4. Create a calendar with multiple views.

It's easy to forget what day of the week something will fall on until you start scheduling things. To avoid this problem, use a calendar program that allows you to view your schedule by month, week, or day. This makes it easier to see what needs to happen each day.


5. Use an online scheduling tool.

Online tools make it easy to manage employee schedules. You can set up recurring events, such as weekly meetings, and then add individual tasks to those events. If you're using Google Calendar, you can also share calendars with other people so everyone knows when certain events are happening.

If you're looking for a simple solution to employee scheduling, we recommend using the ShiftPro scheduling tool. This tool allows you to create schedules quickly and easily. It includes features such as automatic reminders and notifications. You can use it to manage multiple shifts at once.
