A 24/7 business is very different from a 9-5 Monday to Friday workplace – and so is managing it. Many factors contribute to that difference, including:
- Reduced management - employee contact
- Increased family/social stresses on the workers
- Increased risk of employee impairment because of fatigue
Managing 24/7 operations is an art they don’t teach in business school, but it pays to have your mangers understand the best 24/7 management practices.
How CIRCADIAN can help you:
