Many energy organizations still rely on manual employee scheduling processes. These systems were once adequate, but today’s increasingly complicated union agreements and compliance requirements put these organizations at serious risk for noncompliance—a risk that could grow more costly every day. As the energy industry moves towards digitization, what’s needed is an automated, efficient, and accurate way to maintain compliance. Energy organizations can better manage compliance and safety risks, control labor costs, automate crew-callout processes during outages, and drive employee engagement with a workforce scheduling solution.
