Assume that you own a restaurant and you manage a staff of five full-time employees of equal seniority and ability, and each is on the same hourly rate of pay. The names of your staff are Nicole , Prasad ,Mike ,Judy and George
The following requests have been made to receive specific days off over the next roster period, all of which you hope to accommodate if possible.
Nicole : February.

The enterprise requires two staff members for the early shift (0700 to 1530) and two staff members for the late shift (1500 to 2330) from Monday to Friday and only one staff member per shift on the weekends. A third staff member is required for a 'swing shift' (0900 to 1730) on Fridays as it is typically the busiest day of the week.
On the next page you will find the completed first week of a four-week roster. You are required to complete rostering activities
The rostering guidelines are as
• No early shift directly after a late shift except in response to a request for a particular day off.
• Avoid late finishes and early starts around a single day off.
• Staff are to have two consecutive days off each week unless there is a particular request for time off.
• Staff are not to work more than 10 days in a row
• To be fair to all staff, try to roster each staff member on an equal number of early and late shifts throughout the course of
the four-week roster.
To assist you with this task, follow
(i) Use a pencil for this task, as you will need to continually adjust the roster until it all fits together, as per the guidelines.
(ii) Pencil in all staff requests
(iii) Commence with the first employee and looking at the first week of the roster, continue through to the next weeks paying attention to the times of their shifts and requested days or shifts off.
(iv) Continue in the same way with each of the other employees making sure that the enterprise requirements concerning the number of staff to be on duty at any one time are followed.
(v) Remember that staff requests are just that, requests. The staff are employed on the condition that they will be rostered according to the needs of the
enterprise. However, accommodating as many requests as possible will assist in keeping a harmonious workplace.
