Web Based Staff Scheduling Question

Posted on January 25, 2010 at 7:02am 5 Comments

I came across a simple, intuitive, and cost effective web based scheduling program last week and I was curious as to how many of you would already have a program like this in place and if you dont is this something you would consider?



I currently have a similar program in place in my two restuarants which allows us to post the schedule online and the staff simply visit our url to see when they are working and are able to give up shifts / take shifts (with permission), post their… Continue

Best wishes for a great 2010!

Good luck to everyone this year. 2010 might be the best recovery year in history so lets keep our fingers crossed that the worst is behind us and that the only doors closing are when the customers leave.

I would like to increase my FOHBOH network so send me an invitation if you would like to connect.

Cheers,
DM

Seems that FohBoh doesn't allow outbound links in a comment. IE, if you ask "Hey, about those scheduling companies ...", I cannot post a URL that goes outside of FohBoh. So, they are censoring / dropping those posts. Too bad, as it means I'll go back to not posting here ...

Thanks for the chat today, great to learn about your business. Question ... did you remove the comments that I made to your conversation? Seems someone has deleted some of the responses to your question, and I hope to not find out that it was some sort of censorship by FohBoh. That would be unfortunate.

Hi Doug, welcome to FohBoh...This is a great resource site and I know you're going to find a lot of value here. Check out the Groups link on the main navigation bar...this is where you can find topic-related discussions that I know you'll be interested in.

I recommend you join the Local Store Marketing (LSM) Group for inexpensive ways to help market your business and increase sales, the Coffee Lovers Group because, just about everyone working in a restaurant or restaurant-related profession drinks coffee, and the Leading Generation Y Group because the young people working in restaurants today are part of Generation Y and they have unique desires, needs, and an outlook on work, and finally the Ambitions Group because we all have ambitions and dreams, and this is the place to articulate them, find other kindred spirits, and receive positive support from a great bunch of people.

If you have any questions about the site or how to navigate, I'll be happy to help.

Cheers!

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
