Time Care Professional Services

There is more to workforce management than just making schedules. Effective management involves, for example, proficiency in using the software, resource analysis and optimisation of staffing processes.

Successful workforce management entails above all a new way of thinking, resulting in a workplace where everyone is devoted to providing customers with the service they need. Where everyone, managers and employees alike, see themselves as part of a larger whole, and show responsibility and commitment to make the whole function as well as possible.

This brochure is designed to help you to staff your organisation with people who are passionate about what they do, who want to realise their full potential and be part of an organisation that constantly evolves towards improved staff satisfaction and better customer service.

Economy and quality

More efficient use of personnel resources today means better opportunities to create safe jobs and ensure high quality tomorrow. And while employees are by far the most valuable assets in achieving high quality services, for most municipalities staff costs represent 65-95 % of total expenditure, making production- driven workforce planning a crucial strategic step in delivering higher quality within a balanced budget.

Change management Introducing effective workforce management entails a change process that affects all parts of the organisation. At Time Care, we have extensive experience in supporting our customers throughout the change management process and for more than 20 years, we have used this experience to provide services based on customer needs.

Key to effective workforce planning is the recognition that scheduling and temporary staff management cannot be divided into separate management silos - instead, all staffing elements must be integrated into one coherent system. At the same time, successful process change is dependent to a large extent on staff willingness to drive towards a common goal, to embrace change and to understand that the ultimate aim of the staffing process is to create value for customers.

Welcome to Time Care Professional Services, giving customers

access to the training and support that enables leadership in

organisations where every penny, and every minute, counts.



At Time Care, our extensive experience of

implementing new staffing processes and working procedures has enabled us to develop a model that is both proven and comprehensively tested – the key to successful implementation.

The implementation process is focussed on delivering in-depth training, customised to meet the needs of the organisation, in mission-critical Time Care software and applications. Our consultants make sure that your personnel know how to use the functionality to the best effect, that your system includes the right usage agreements and compliance protocols and that your key people are capable of making the right analyses and follow-up actions. The process also establishes how to integrate securely with external systems and, of course, how to produce schedules that achieve the optimum balance between the interests of the organisation, employees and customers.


Following implementation it can be important to make sure that new applications are running as they should and that the organisation continues to make the most of the new system. With Time Care as trusted partner, organisations can rely on dependable support for follow-up and assessment. Our consultants can help you to demonstrate positive effects and increase and consolidate acceptance and usage of new procedures.

Crucially, we make sure that the organisation continues to achieve management efficiencies and higher service quality levels.


Time Care consultants help with everything from overall strategic planning to providing hands-on experience with scheduling tools, implementation and follow-up support. Key to the guidance process is an in-depth analysis of your current situation, which leads to defining clear objectives and identifying the most appropriate solutions.

The process also includes a series of workshops designed to inform planning and balance the interests of all stakeholders, managers and employees, in achieving the optimum outcome. The Time Care guidance process is also totally flexible, capable of providing everything, from simple ‘sounding board’

advice to complete project management.

Employee involvement

Staffing process transformation affects everyone in the organisation. Employee insecurities can lead to poor acceptance levels or even active opposition to new working methods. Consequently it is absolutely vital that the whole organisation is involved in the change process at an early stage and that everyone understands why change is necessary and how it will be achieved.

Time Care consultants support managers and provide them with the tools for leading the change process.

They help the executive group to develop a robust plan of action and how to communicate it, providing support for education sessions, lectures and forums for discussing objectives and expectations – all with the aim of involving employees and building understanding of professional roles and the ultimate purpose of the change process – creating customer value.

Professional Services implementation approach

The Time Care process. Time Care Professional Services are structured around four phases, all fundamental to successful change management.
