Your roster is more important to your business than you realise. Get it right and your business will perform well and your employees will be happy ones. A good roster needs to be efficient, fair and well-communicated.

Thankfully the days of pen and paper rosters with coffee stains pinned up in your offices are over with rostering software RosterElf.

But here are some tips:

1. TEMPLATES.
Forget about the people. Focus on the position you need filled and at which times throughout the week. Use RosterElf's budgeting tool within the rostering software to ensure you have just enough people where you need them, when you need them. Once you are happy, save your template with a name to save you time in the future.

2. MANAGEMENT AND KEY STAFF.
Next, think about your key people and assign them to the most important shifts first. This will ensure you have strong leaders at all times.

3. GENERAL STAFF.
Now assign all the other staff to their shifts with a simple click, using RosterElf rostering software's hour calculator to ensure you are sharing the hours best as possible among your team.

4. REVIEW.
Once you have assigned all the positions, hit Next which will take you to the Roster Summary page. Here, you can review how many hours you have given your staff compared with what they have requested. If you need to make any adjustments, simply go back and update.

5. ROSTER COMMENTS.
RosterElf's rostering software gives you opportunity to send comments to your employees along with the roster. This is a great way to communicate news, areas of focus or changes in the business.

5. HIT PUBLISH.
Once you are 100% happy, select SMS and Email and click Publish. All employees will have their shifts communicated via Email and SMS.

RosterElf makes staff rostering a breeze. Follow these tips with RosterElf and you will find rostering staff stress will be a thing of the past.
