Automated Scheduling System for Active Screening

We are happy to announce the launch of the PickATime automated scheduling system to coordinate the active screening process at our entrances

The PickATime system will allow staff to log in and book a shift that is convenient for their schedule.  The system is now live and available for booking shifts.  

Please note that at present time, casual staff are not eligible to sign up for these shifts; please contact the HR team if you have additional questions regarding this matter. If you have been redeployed into another role, please do not sign up for screening shifts at this time

The system will generate automatic confirmation emails and reminder emails 24 hours before shifts start. Text message reminders are also enabled for users who enter their cellphone numbers.  An additional advantage of this system is that it can be accessed from your home computer or personal device, wherever and whenever needed.  There is also the option for users to change and modify their own shifts up to 48 hours in advance (within 48 hours please reach out directly to Kim Jones-Galley for screener shifts, Elizabeth Dunphy for trainer shifts and Rohan Mahabir for backup support.
