Creative Scheduling

This refers to a work schedule or roster which is a deviation from the industry norm. It may be implemented to accommodate existing employees’ personal and family needs and/or to attract potential employees with life stage needs that do not fit into the traditional work schedule or roster practised in that industry.

For example, some organisations in industries which typically implement a 12-hour shift roster with two employees may find it easier to recruit and retain employees when they introduce the option of three 8-hour shifts shared amongst three employees instead.
