Microsoft has officially taken the wraps off StaffHub, which is the company’s free Office 365 app for shift workers. The app was initially available as a public preview, and will help the estimated 500-million frontline staff workers manage their workday with schedule management, information sharing, and more.
StaffHub is now available immediately to all Office 365 corporate members (with a K1, E1, E3 or E5 plan) on the web as well as for iOS and Android in a total of 15 languages. With Staffhub, managers can create, update, and manage shift schedules for their team. At the same time, employees also have access to their shift information, including the ability to swap shifts with others right from the Microsoft StaffHub mobile app.
As explained in the video above, the home screen of StaffHub provides a summary of upcoming shifts as well as any important notes. Because of this, when schedule conflicts come up, Microsoft StaffHub makes it easy to swap a shift or offer a shift to someone else. Managers can also use Staffhub to quickly distribute important information to their team, such as policy documents, news bulletins or videos. Additionally, managers have a fast and reliable way to send quick messages to team members.
Since companies use different systems, programs, and tools, Microsoft added support for connections to Kronos, which is a leading provider of workforce management and human capital management cloud solutions. This feature, however, is initially available in a private preview to a small group of Office 365 and Kronos customers, and more information will follow soon.
