COMMUNICATION: WHAT TO DO IF YOU CAN’T WORK YOUR SHIFT

 

Good communication is essential when you are on the roster to work a shift. Firstly, this ensures that we know your availability at all times.  Also, that you understand client requirements at each site.

WE’RE A 24/7 OPERATION AND RELY ON YOUR COMMUNICATION

YOU, together with our clients, are our most valuable asset.

The Labourpower business is reliant on meeting client expectations. This means supplying staff for all shifts. To achieve this and to keep you busy working, good communication is essential.

IMPORTANT: If you are unable to attend work you must make all reasonable efforts to let your manager know at least one hour before your start time.

KEEP IN TOUCH 24/7

We understand that there may be times when you are not available to work. And this is okay.

It’s important to let your manager know if you’re unable to work.  Then they are able to organise your replacement.

Communicating your availability is essential for future rostering.

Reasons to contact Labourpower include (but are not limited to):

  • Firstly, if you are unable to work a rostered shift
  • Also, if you are running late for work

It is also important to let us know as soon as possible if you find permanent work.

REMEMBER: Labourpower operates 24/7.  There is ALWAYS someone available for you to speak to.

TIPS FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

Labourpower does not set the shift roster times, duration, work or any changes or cancellations that the client makes. To ensure everything runs smoothly, we also recommend that you:

Firstly, keep in constant contact with your Labourpower consultant.

Remember to notify us immediately if your contact details change. It’s important that we always have your current email address and mobile number.

Also remember that it is also important to call us:

  • If something is not safe within your work,  or
  • You are asked to do something that is unsafe

Finally, if you are unsure about anything then get in touch immediately

BE COVID SAFE

If you or someone you know is displaying any coronavirus symptoms, then it is important that you DO NOT go to work. Please stay home and contact your Labourpower Branch IMMEDIATELY.

SAFETY GOES 24/7

Labourpower values your health and wellbeing and has an ongoing commitment to safety in the workplace.

We are also proud to partner with Workactive to bring you safety and wellbeing programs throughout the year.

We look forward to bringing you more safety tips as part of our Toolbox Tuesdays.

Look out for our regular Toolbox Tuesday and Wellness Wednesday posts on Facebook, LinkedIn and the Labourpower website.
