When it comes to civil servants and those working for authorities, we often think of standard 9-5 office work. However, there are many public sector organisations where irregular hours and shift work are the norm - such as fire brigades, the police, and customs. European governments believe that these employees should have more of a say in their working hours, as it improves health and well-being and thus employee longevity. In turn, this helps maintain national pension systems.
In Europe, public sector organisations seem to be embracing the idea of flexible workforce scheduling methods. We are already seeing pilot schemes and other experiments in the Netherlands, Belgium, and the UK. As leading experts, we provide tailored advice in implementing self-rostering, from pilot schemes to full scale solutions.
