Fourth, have launched an in-app health survey that enables operators to efficiently track the health of their employees to ensure all measures are taken to safely staff their sites when the industry reopens.

The new feature, which is securely accessible for employees via the Fourth app, asks employees a series of questions on their current health so that operators can establish if they are fit to work ahead of their shift. The questions will be asked daily and are in line with the latest NHS advice and Government guidance on return to work protocol for the hospitality industry. Responses will feed in the Fourth scheduling solution, enabling managers to see which team members are fit to work that day.  You can find out more about this feature by watching a short demo video. 

The function will be available free of charge from 18th June to customers using Fourth’s Workforce Management solution. If you are a Fourth Customer and interested in activating this click here.
