Pick of the week

BrightHR has launched a free rota planning tool, BrightHR Light. Rather than focus on the product functionality, the company turned to a customer to explain why this release was important. Kate Nicholls OBE, CEO at UK Hospitality, says: “The tens of thousands of our members’ venues across the hospitality industry know all too well how quickly staffing situations can change, requiring constant changes to the rota which can lead to confusion, mix-ups, and overlapping shifts.

“Rota management is pivotal for the functioning of a hospitality business and is one of the most important aspects of how bars, restaurants and cafes are run. BrightHR Lite makes rota management easier, by ensuring employees are constantly aware of which shifts they have been assigned and saving managers the trouble of drawing up new rotas when changes need to be made. This frees up time to focus on the many other challenging aspects of running a venue.

“Gladly, we’ve moved on from having handwritten rotas on a wall and employees having to come in/call up to find out when they are working.”
