Education employee scheduling

Reduce absenteeism by adding the best employee scheduling to your education team’s repertoire to see who’s available, who’s working, and quickly find and assign a substitute. All while minimizing labor costs and complying with your local rest and break laws. Your team views their shifts from anywhere, and receives notifications to remind them. Plus, post available shifts and allow employees to swap, freeing you up to focus on your students.

Education employee time clock

Track employees’ time on the clock down to the minute and sync with your payroll to ensure accurate paychecks, every time. Employees clock in and out of shifts right from their phones, or from a central kiosk. Enable GPS geofencing to verify employees are on-site when they clock in. Track who gets extra credit by seeing who shows up on time, late, or no-call no-shows.

Education labor costs

Employee labor is one of the largest expenses for your education business. Plan for the lowest costs by tracking hours worked and setting the most efficient schedules for your team. Plan ahead of payroll by viewing time on the clock and potential overtime as you schedule. Compare labor costs and other expenses to revenue to stay within budget.

Education task management

You understood the assignment, but does your team know what to do? Add tasks specific to any employee or shift so everyone knows what to do and where to go. Create a task from scratch, or use a premade template for recurring tasks. With task assignments, your team completes to-dos in time for the next pop quiz.

Absolutely essential

…to running my small business. Very pleased with Sling.

Spend less time on education employee scheduling and more time focusing on students

Keep track of credentials with employee documents

Never worry if a license or certification has expired again. Attach important files to employee profiles to see who is certified for what. Keep contracts, records, or anything else that matters to you right next to your team members’ profiles. You even receive alerts when documents are about to expire, so you never have to worry about slipping out of compliance.

Instantly sync employee timesheets to payroll

Avoid payroll issues before they occur and save time calculating time on the clock. Track the cost of your employees’ labor compared to your budget. Sync employee timesheets with your preferred payroll software, or export reports for down-to-the-minute accuracy. Sling simplifies your payroll process while improving accuracy for every paycheck.

Stay compliant and give your employees ample rest time

Don’t spend time worrying if your schedule is compliant with local labor laws. View overtime hours and account for holiday pay as you schedule. Give your employees enough time to rest between shifts with alerts and break time built into their shift. If anything is out of compliance or needs your attention, Sling lets you know.
