Welcome to a new era of work rotas & NEW FEATURE: OPEN SHIFTS!

Still writing out rotas by hand? Creating complicated spreadsheets? Chasing up staff on the phone to confirm availability? Come on, you’re far too good for that!

Our smart rota planner makes it quick and easy to create rotas, add shifts, and assign staff—and publish your rotas online in minutes.

PLUS – NOW including OPEN Shifts.

Open shifts enables you as the employer to release shifts that are unfilled to your staff, giving real time alerts to your staff so they can pick the shift on a first come first served basis – automatically filling it.

Never have a shift left open and give your staff a chance to easily pick up shifts anywhere, anytime.

Our Rota tool with Open Shifts is the best rota management tool in the market. Check it out!

People management on the go

So you finally finish the rotas. All that planning has paid off. Now, it’s down to your people to pay attention and show up. And with a paper rota or a spreadsheet, that’s… not always how it works out.

The free BrightHR iOS and Android app solves that. Here’s how:

  • checkYour team can check the rota any time, any day. There’s no excuse anymore that they didn’t see it pinned up on the wall in work.
  • checkWhenever you add staff to a new rota or edit a shift, they get an automatic notification so they know where to be and when. And you know that they know.
  • checkYour people can even use the app to request time off, so you don’t have to wait until work starts to find out about an upcoming absence.
