Resistance to Change

Change is inevitable yet everyone resists change. This is because change means new and different. It could be good, it could be bad? But you need to experience it before you can judge. Fear is a normal human response to the unknown. You need to understand why people will resist change in order to address their fears and help them come to terms with change or even request it.

If you want to introduce change into your organisation then you need to be prepared for resistance. Most of the time if change is resisted then it doesn't happen. After all it's very hard to keep the momentum going when everyone around you is negative.

So if you want change to happen, then you need to keep the momentum going. Set targets, set goals, and organise updates. Build up the momentum, make people take ownership of the project.

When it comes to changing your shift operation people are afraid. They are afraid of what it will mean to them. So you need to demonstrate what their life will be like under the new arrangement. Think about their work/life balance. Compare their current work/life balance to the new arrangement.

If you want a better work/life balance for your employees than take our course in Shift Scheduling. As part of this course you will find out how to design your own shift pattern, you will also find out how to calculate the number of shift workers you need for your operation. The course covers new techniques for coping with vacations and absences. It will also show you how you can be a greener operation through using different procedures and improve your employee’s work/life balance.
For over 10-years we have been organising training courses for companies to teach them how to manage their shift operation. We wanted to create a new more flexible approach to learning. So we have created our video course. 15 films that introduce you to a new way of organising your shift operation. This course only takes about five hours to complete and at the end you will know how many employees you need for your operation, and have VisualrotaX to help you manage your shift pattern. So you can plan the shift operation for up to a year ahead. The course is completely flexible, you can watch the films when you want, from any where in the world. Pause the lesson when you need and go back over classes.
This means that you can learn at your own pace and the films are there when you need a refresher. So you don't just have to rely on notes any more.
Our aim is to create a complete video library on shift working. Everything from concept to implementation, so that you to can be a shift scheduling expert.
So please visit our on-line school today and start your e-learning experience.

Shift Scheduling

C-Desk Technology is about making your life easier. With this in mind we have started an ambitious new project. We plan to put all of our 20 years of experience designing shift patterns for companies around the world, into an on-line school. So that we can help shift manager from around the world realise their potential.
Our first course is Shift Scheduling. This is an introductory course aimed at shift operations managers and HR managers.
All organisations running shifts have very similar problems, including: employing the correct number of staff with the right skill, accommodating annual leave and coping with absences. We work with organisations to set up mechanisms to calculate the right number of staff to match the workload. We set up procedures which allow all staff to take their holidays without disrupting the operation, and the means to cover and cope with expected and unexpected absences. We have combined our expert knowledge of shift pattern design and policies to create a comprehensive course intended to help managers tackle these issues.

Our shift scheduling course is about making your life easier. Giving you a better work/life balance, creating a perfect shift operation that meets your needs. The aim of the Shift Scheduling e-learning course is to provide you with the tools and techniques to implement an efficient shift operation. 

In Shift Scheduling you will find out how to calculate the number of shift workers you need for your operation, and how to design a shift pattern to match your workload and requirements. We will cover new techniques for covering vacations and absences. Show you how you can be a greener operation through using different procedures and improve your employee’s work/life balance.
Designing the right shift pattern is crucial for running an effective and efficient operation.
