Work plays a vital role in everybody’s life and there is no doubt about it. But, how it is balanced with personal life is of greater importance. Won’t you agree with us on that? This is why today we’d like to talk to you about how GuardsPro scheduler combined with the GuardsPro mobile app for security guards is designed to ensure they can maintain a better work-life balance.
Pick And Choose Open Shifts
An open shift is one of the greatest features of GuardsPro scheduler which is to reduce understaffed shifts, so the demands of the clients can be easily met. This feature simply empowers the guards to take ownership of choosing when they can work.
Also, if smartly used with the GuardsPro skill set, it can make the guards feel their skills are being fairly used. And that’s the first step you can take using GuardsPro guard tour system to help guards maintain a better work-life balance.
Confirm Shifts In Advance
Shift confirmation is a great modern tool that is used to significantly improve the accuracy and transparency in the automated scheduling process of a security guard company. How? The moment shifts are confirmed, the back-office users are instantly notified in real time. Thus, giving them the confidence that the guards will be at the client site as required.
As for the security guards, providing them the ability to confirm shifts can help them make important decisions based on their work-life priorities, that a back-office user might not be aware of to maintain a better balance of both for them.
Request Shift Exchange From The App
GuardsPro guard tour system is equipped with a powerful security guard scheduler that provides an efficient way to ensure schedules are followed through and commitments to the clients are fulfilled. The exchange shift feature of GuardsPro allows doing that without interrupting the workflow.
This feature gives security guards the freedom to easily and effectively exchange even confirmed shifts with other security guards. This not only ensures adequate coverage, but also saves the back-office users time, reduces labor costs, and improves productivity.
Request Time Off And View Status
Time off is often connected directly to the quality of life and freedom to maintain a healthy personal life away from work when the need arises. Therefore, it is important to give security guards the opportunity and the tool to request time off and view the status easily.
In the case of the GuardsPro guard tour system, all they need is the GuardsPro mobile app to request time off from anywhere. In case of an emergency, they need not rush to the office but just apply for leave online so the back-office users can receive and manage those requests in a timely and effective manner.
Define Guard Availability Easily
In post COVID scenario, flexible work is no longer something for only selected employees of selected industries. Many employers in the security guard industry are offering flexible schedules to their security guards as well to improve retention, diversity, productivity, and work-life balance.
GuardsPro enables security guard companies to achieve that by letting the security guard define their availability for the week using the GuardsPro mobile app. This information is made available to the back-office users to create schedules for guard based on it.
How GuardsPro Security Patrol App Plays A Vital Role?
