Although you can use them independently, Skills and Attributes are essential to scheduling. They can be certifications or permits and employee skills or items the employee possesses, such as uniforms. You can assign Skills and Attributes to individual guards. Then, set the skills and attributes for a position. Guards will only be able to work in positions where they have the necessary skills and attributes.
The advantages of using skills and attributes include:
Schedules: Only see employees that meet the combination of compliance for the post/position. Most likely, these compliances will be required from the client receiving the service. I.e., site-specific training, firearm license, First aid/CPR training,
Legal Reasons: Depending on the country, state, province, or area your employees will be working. This will help ensure they meet the minimum requirements to work for the Security Company. I.e., Security Guard Card, Driver’s License, and Language.
Employee Management: With our date fields, you will ensure that all employees renew their certifications on time. TrackTik will warn admin users of soon-to-expire skills and attributes. Default settings will warn the admin 30 days before the expiry date. This setting can increase or decrease the days before a warning is triggered.
Growth for employees: This will help you promote the right employees in their current roles and toward new roles.
