Use Case Example: Personnel Planning with HRlab

Overview of Personnel Planning

Personnel planning in HRlab allows for the configuration of fixed or rotating shifts that can be assigned to employees (for example, one week of morning shifts, one week of evening shifts, one week of morning shifts without Mondays but including Saturdays). To facilitate monitoring, target number of employees can be defined for various times of the day and each day of the week.

Configuring Shifts and Shift Rotations

To create shift patterns, you first define the shifts to be used in the rotation. This includes a label, as well as a start or end time. Additionally, you can set whether the legal break regulation (30 minutes for over 6 hours, 45 minutes for over 9 hours) or a different rule (e.g., a general 1-hour break) applies, which affects the length of the shifts accordingly.

Finally: Setting Up Rotations

In the next step, you create rotations and configure them accordingly. Rotations can be assigned to companies and departments, allowing only employees from these organizational units to be assigned to them. Then, you specify how many employees working in each rotation and easily track overstaffing or understaffing in the calendar overview at any time.
