Culver's: The Right Balance of Business Needs and Employee Flexibility

At Culver’s employee happiness and operational efficiency go hand-in-hand. After moving to HotSchedules Labor, Logbook and Time & Attendance Module, the Culver’s of Addison, IL location was able to save managers’ time, energy, and labor costs by optimizing their processes. With a better system in place, they reduced the overall burden on leadership and increased employee attendance. Their new scheduling process has also improved work-life balance for their employees.



“If we notice that someone is dropping a lot of shifts, it gives us the opportunity to open a dialogue and find out if they are unhappy and checked out or are they having a work-life balance issue.”- Todd Eposito, Franchise Owner, Culver’s Addison, IL
