Non-profit employee scheduling refers to the schedule of employees or volunteers in non-profit organizations or institutions. These groups include charities, social and entertainment groups, and religious groups. The challenges that this type of scheduling generally encounters are mainly communication; employee availability; and last-minute shift changes. Using cloud-based scheduling and labor management platforms can help these organizations streamline processes and coordinate large numbers of volunteers. These platforms may include employee scheduling, time and attendance, task assignment, communication and employee feedback tools.
