How WorkForce Software Helped Rite Aid Schedule Staff More Effectively and Reduce Overtime Costs

One of the U.S.’s leading drugstore chains, Rite Aid is committed to improving the health and wellness of all Americans. They operate in 19 states and employ 51,000 associates.

The Goals

  • Schedule associates and pharmacists across multiple locations more efficiently
  • Reduce unnecessary and unexpected overtime and labour costs
  • Gain better visibility into employees’ schedules and easily fill shifts

The Challenges

  • Employees had difficulty staying informed about their schedules and managing their availability
  • Inefficient scheduling processes often led to payroll processing errors and additional overtime costs
  • Needed a solution to integrate with existing time & attendance platform on a large, complex scale

The Ask

The Solution

  • Leveraged labour forecast data to optimise scheduling processes with WorkForce Scheduling
  • Provided a platform for associates and pharmacists to check their schedules and manage availability from personal devices easily
  • Integrated solution into company workflow thanks to its intuitive user design and WorkForce Software’s streamlined implementation process
