Advancing levels of attainment for e-rostering and e-job planning

By utilising e-rostering and e-job planning software, trusts can make sure the right staff with the right skills are in the right place at the right time.

This page is a compilation of resources to enable trusts in achieving this. Resources include documents on how to procure and develop best-in-class software for e-rostering and e-job planning, and information on levels of attainment and meaningful use standards.

Workforce deployment software survey

Before submitting a bid, please complete the annual survey on your existing e-rostering and e-job planning software. HR directors will receive the survey shortly.

By identifying local practice, progress and issues, we can further develop support for providers’ advancement through the levels of attainment.

Supporting documents

These resources provide guidance on how to procure and develop best-in-class software for e-rostering and e-job planning. We encourage all trusts to read these documents as effective workforce deployment has proved invaluable during the COVID-19 response, which has strongly emphasised the importance of having the right staff with the right skills are in the right place at the right time.

Levels of attainment and meaningful use standards

These documents set out ‘levels of attainment’ in using e-rostering and e-job planning software and are designed to allow trusts to benchmark progress with peers. Each level of attainment is underpinned by ‘meaningful use standards’ which describe the processes and systems trusts need to meet each level of attainment.

In adopting these standards, trusts will feel empowered and assured they have implemented e-rostering and e-job planning software to the fullest potential.
