If you work within the travel, retail, hospitality, restaurant, healthcare, construction or another service related business sector take a look at ‘StaffHub’. It’s a new Office 365 application designed to help employees who do not have their own office, desk or computer, manage workdays with schedule management, information sharing and the ability to connect to other work-related apps and resources. Employees can view shift schedules and receive updates from managers on their smartphones (currently iOS and Android).
StaffHub’s core is the calendar which managers use to set schedules and where employees can see who or where they are working on a given day. If a conflict occurs employees can use the app to swap shifts with a co-worker. Swap requests are sent to a manager for approval and updates, along with any other notifications are then automatically sent to the entire team.
There is a separate area within the app to post documents, a staff handbook for example, and a messaging platform for quick communications between a team.
‘StaffHub’ is currently included with the K1, E1, E3 and E5 Office 365 plans. To sign in goto https://staffhub.office.com/
