Theme Park & Leisure
Flexible Workforce Planning of Hourly-Paid and Seasonal Workers
Many of TimePlan’s theme park customers employ seasonal workers. With TimePlan, they can reuse templates and work schedules year after year without having to do each roster from scratch. Templates for shift patterns can be applied – even when new employees are hired.
Many theme and amusement parks are open on weekends and in the evening, where special employment rules apply for over-time allowances.
All Work Hours Are Recorded Correctly
TimePlan ensures that all work hours are recorded correctly via a punch clock, sign in and out on terminals or simply via the TimePlan Web App.
The employees can enjoy their work knowing that all hours are recorded and rules are being adhered to. The staff administration and management save time and hassle every day with easy administration and transfer of data to the payroll system.
Rush Jumps Ahead with TimePlan’s Web App
When Denmark’s first trampoline park opened, Deputy Manager Thomas Pedersen, Rush Denmark, and his employees also launched TimePlan’s workforce management, including the TimePlan Web App.
“We selected TimePlan because our employees can see the roster on their mobile devices and swap shifts via the TimePlan Web App. We work at different hours and locations around the trampoline park, and our employees can sign in and out of TimePlan via an iPad,” says Thomas Petersen, Deputy Manager at Rush Denmark.
The trampoline park consists of 1,700 m2 interconnected trampolines.
Easy for Everyone
For Thomas Pedersen and Managing Director Karen Andresen it has been essential to implement TimePlan right from the outset at Rush. Karen knows TimePlan from her previous job at the department store Salling, and couldn’t imagine not having an online staff scheduling system.
“One of the advantages with TimePlan is that when shifts have been uploaded to the roster, each employee is responsible for either taking the shift or swapping it with someone else. It makes it easy for everyone as opposed to a printed roster from Excel, which needs to be corrected manually,” says Thomas Pedersen.
Thomas Pedersen is looking forward to having TimePlan help with future manning needs.
“Right now, we don’t know our busiest periods of the day. We have just opened. But in a few months from now, we can see a pattern from the time and attendance data in TimePlan, and create our rosters accordingly,” says Thomas Pedersen.
Rush is an American amusement park concept, which is spreading to European cities, including Helsinki, Finland. Rush Helsinki also uses TimePlan workforce management and Rush in South Africa has recently implemented TimePlan as well.
Companies in 25 countries use TimePlan
“With TimePlan’s Web App, we can easily communicate available shifts to our 20 biology and veterinary students who help as presenters at our special events.”
