Frequently asked questions

Is workforce management scheduling only for hourly employees? 

No. Some workforce management systems help support salaried employees as well. For example, Dayforce allows project-based employees to align time worked against specific projects. This helps better allocate labor by project against general ledgers. 

Can employee shift preferences be taken into consideration? 

Dayforce lets employees manage their schedule availability using self-service. With the availability editor, employees can specify which days they’re able to work and the times they’re available to work on any day. Employees can define default availability and can also submit temporary changes. 

Are workers able to bid on either vacations or shifts they’d like to work? 

Yes. With Dayforce, managers can post open shifts for bidding among qualified employees. Managers can review relevant information for each employee who accepts the shift, such as seniority and response time, and can award the shift to the appropriate employee based on the combination of this criteria. 

Can the system handle the latest predictive and fair scheduling legislation? 

Yes. The Dayforce predictive scheduling premium rule can be tailored by region to help you manage compliance with evolving fair workweek requirements. 

Is it important to have scheduling and payroll on a single system? 

Yes. Along with helping increase accuracy and efficiency, having scheduling and pay on a single system easily gives you real-time insights into, for example, whether your labor budget can support being open an hour longer. Or what it might look like if you were to open on a holiday. A single system for workforce management and pay also helps enable instant net-pay calculations and on-demand pay for the workforce.
