Efficient handling of temp workers at Ahlsell

"The ProMobile app simplifies and streamlines the entire management of the temporary workers pool. Ahlsell saves time and money by having a flexible pool of temporary workers where the management of these employees in ProMark supports the rules applicable to casual workers. And, as an employer, we get a modern image by using cutting-edge tools for our employees".

 Ingela Tholin Carlos, Production Planner, Ahlsell


Simplfied handling of temp workers at Ahlsell

The challenge

  • In 2019, Ahlsell established their own temporary workers pool. The communication around vacant shifts took place via phone and email with follow-up by pen and paper – and subsequent manual handling in ProMark. This was a very time-consuming process.

Project scope and success criteria

  • The need for extra shifts is created from forecasts on the number of orders to be picked and the known absence
  • All vacant shifts are published in ProMobile and can be taken on a first-come, first-served basis – without manager approval
  • Support for continuous increase in the number of users

Methods

  • Ahlsell already uses:
    • ProTime for time & attendance registration for all employees in Sweden and Norway
    • ProRoster for staff roster planning
    • Integration to HR-plus and Visma payroll systems
    • ProTerminal

Outcome

  • Much more efficient and precise handling of shifts
  • Everything around working time is in place when the students clock in
  • Employees always have an overview of their shifts on their mobile
  • Team managers get a complete overview of their staff

Primary results

  • Saves time and money
  • Better ability to meet demand compared to Ahlsell’s highly detailed forecasts
  • Correct remuneration of the students
  • A modern image as an employer by using cutting-edge tools
