The Employee Scheduler is an affordable spreadsheet to help you schedule hourly employees and manage your labor costs as a percentage of sales. (Requires Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice to run). This spreadsheet is right for business owners and managers who have simple needs and who want an inexpensive tool to help them make schedules. Typically, it is right for business that schedule fewer than 25 employees on a weekly basis, don't want to invest hundreds or thousands of dollars on a complex scheduling systemm and who need to "ballpark" how scheduling scenarios impact the payroll as a percentage of sales. Before you invest money, time and effort into a scheduling software package, try this spreadsheet. For a very small price, it may do everything you need it to do.
