Challenges in Scheduling
Employees suffer from unstable work schedules caused by unfair scheduling practices like: On-call shifts: When employees are summoned by managers to work before shift starts. Clopening shifts: When manager asks employees to work again just after they finish their shifts. Rotating Shifts: When a 9 hour shift is split into 3-hour sets.
Employee exhaustion seems to be a top scheduling policy. With unfair schedules, people become tired and exhausted. When tired, people make more mistakes, and turns out unhappy and unproductive.
The more time leaders spend on administrative tasks, the less time they have to devote their talent to scaling people and profits.
Due to scheduling failures if an employee is not paid for his overtime, then the employer might be sued for violating Labor standards act, which may lead them to huge fine.

When scheduling fails, right people are not scheduled for right job at the right time. This results in failure in delivering peak ROI.
