Streamline Scheduling and Reduce Overtime in Group Home Programs
Agencies managing group homes face unique challenges not found in other programs, including overtime, scheduling, and low-level paper timesheet fraud. Payroll and overtime costs tend to be relatively high in group home programs. Agency Workforce Management offers affordable and effective solutions for agencies with group homes to cope with these and other challenges.
Our biometric fingerprint readers are affordable, deliver a quick return-on-investment, are suitable for use in three- to four-bed group homes, and have many advantages over other time and attendance methods when it comes to group home programs.
Of all the agency programs that benefit from scheduling, group homes have the most to gain. The labor shortage is forcing more providers to look at their scheduling methods in group homes. Agency Workforce Management allows employees to receive next shift reminders, view their schedule, see who they are working with, and more.
Staff working in group home programs often work in more than one group home and may be subject to schedule variations. Agency Workforce Management includes schedule prompting, which provides daily reminders for staff as to where they are working, who they are working with, start and end times, and work instructions.
Staff working overnight awake shifts may be required to check-in every hour or two to ensure they are awake and have not left the group home. Alerts can be automatically generated if a staff member misses a check awake punch.
Agencies are busy organizations. Managers, HR, and executives have a lot of issues to track, such as training, licenses, and more. Automated Workforce Management alerts let your agency focus on its priorities by erasing the need to use reports and manual emails.
