Hi, I’m Alec Jezewski. We are often tasked with arranging absence cover so that when an absence occurs because of holidays or sickness, the effects are minimised. All businesses have to plan for absences. So, here are the 12 most common methods used for coping with holidays and illness and combinations of these.. 1. Shutdown the operation, typical example is shutting down for Christmas or for maintenance in the Summer. 2. Putting Extra people on shift so some can take the day off 3. U-shifts are flexible shifts that move about through the year covering when needed 4. Overtime is a common panacea whenever an absence occurs 5. Holiday included shift patterns remove 90% of the holiday problem if not in its entirety 6. Cover shifts to provide people on stand-by if an absence occurs 7. Agency staff can be called in as needed 8. Run short, some people cannot be replaced, so we arrange to run the operation without them 9. Bank Hours or reserve hours provide you with extra hours and people when you need them 10. Holiday Management Plan can be used to contain the problem to acceptable limits 11. Quotas are used to prevent the summer bulge of holidays 12. Skills Matrix provides the means to cover all skills at basic pay rates If you would like more information about any of these methods, please give us a call.
