No matter how big or small your team, navigating staff holidays can be a minefield, especially in the busy summer season. Managing staff schedules effectively will ensure you have consistent cover, while avoiding issues such as double holiday bookings and lost business due to staff shortages.
Juggling staff schedules is enough to give any salon or spa manager a headache and takes away valuable time from other important tasks. But this tedious admin work doesn’t have to be complicated. Fresha makes the day-to-day running of your hair, beauty or wellness business much easier, by combining all your needs into one platform. Here’s how you can use Fresha to help you keep organised while planning staff holidays.
