Sustainable flexibility with self-rostering

Your employees schedule themselves, per period and within the occupancy requirements of your organization or team. Thanks to Planpoint, self-rostering becomes easy, transparent and efficient


Why self-rotering?

Better staffing, higher productivity and less absenteeism are some proven benefits.

Employee satisfaction

Greater participation in work hours and a transparent scheduling process increase satisfaction and team spirit


Better match the availability of your people to changing circumstances.

Ideal occupancy

Contract hours are approached better, "difficult" shifts are filled, leave requests are taken into account immediately

Smart planning

Less pressure on daily schedule changes, more time for real planning tasks and planning ahead.

How does self-rostering function in Planpoint?

Your organization or manager specifies the desired deployment of employees for each planning period in Planpoint. This can be in the form of shifts, qualifications or hourly rate. Your employees then start self-rostering in three successive steps.

Planpoint - self-rostering wish phase

Stage 1: My ideal schedule

In the first step, each employee sets up his or her own ideal schedule for the period to be scheduled.Each employee plans his or her shifts, schedule days off, leave and fills in his or her contract hours.

Your employees also indicate when they prefer not to work (veto). This can all be done easily from home, via the website or the Planpoint mobile app, individually or with their family.

Stage 2: our ideal schedule

The second step begins with the aggregated result of the first step.The sum of all individual wishes usually does not fit the demand for commitment.In this second step, your employees are given the opportunity to make the joint schedule better.They do this by solving under- and over-utilizations from phase 1 themselves. This can be done, for example, by choosing an extra shift or moving an activity to another day.

Stage 3: the final schedule

The third step involves a role for the planner or team leader. He or she must finalize the staffing for the period to be planned and thus make decisions on those issues that the employees in steps 1 and 2 failed to resolve individually and collectively.He or she does this fairly based on, for example, contract balance or number of vetoes.

An objective points system can keep track of which colleagues have contributed to improving the schedule in the first two stages.
