Staff Management

Bellwether's Staff Resourcing tool allows you to create, project and distribute rosters based on budgets and desired staff to customer ratios which you provide. The staff management page is accessible under the 'Staff Resourcing' menu on the left hand sidebar.
In Staff Management, you can add, view and delete staff in your company, specifying their store, department, and pay rates.
