Give Clear Guidance
IPI’s Head of Consulting shares his suggestions for organising shift swaps:
Setting clear processes for swapping shifts can help to eliminate frustrations down the road. You need to highlight every step that is involved and introduce this in training.
One step which is often forgotten, according to Craig Farley, Head of Consulting at IP Integration, is gaining confirmations.
“While it can be a little cumbersome, you need to ensure you’ve got confirmation from both people of exactly what they’re swapping and have this on record,” says Craig.
Putting reminders in continuous training materials for those who are already on the job is a good way to remind advisors of the proper process.
