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

Still writing out rosters 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 roster planner makes it quick and easy to create rosters, add shifts, and assign staff—and publish your rosters 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 Roster tool with Open Shifts is the best roster management tool in the market. Check it out!

People management on the go

So you finally finish the rosters. All that planning has paid off. Now, it’s down to your people to pay attention and show up. And with a paper roster 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 roster any time, any day. There’s no excuse anymore that they didn’t see it pinned up on the wall in work.
  • checkWhenever you publish a new roster or amend one, your staff get an automatic notification so they know where to be and when. And you know that they know.
  • checkCasual workers can even use the app to approve or decline a shift, helping you to stay on the right side of the law.
