Member Engagement Workforce Scheduler at Signify Health

Member Engagement Workforce Scheduler


How will this role have an impact?

Under the supervision of the WFM Manager. The WFM Scheduler will ensure that schedules are created to meet operational goals and optimize MEC productivity. The scheduler will create the master workforce plan with interval staffing levels projected, incorporating absenteeism
assumptions and advance off-phone activity (OPA) planning, and optimized through the scheduling of break/lunch periods. The scheduling role will provide support for the Intra-day Analyst role and will identify advance opportunities for flexing staff levels up/down based on
operational/production requirements. The scheduler will generate a daily interval level staffing net line report (scheduled MECs less planned/unplanned absenteeism and Off Phone Activities). The net line report will be utilized by the intra-day analyst to make operational
decisions on staffing levels and will be updated to reflect actual interval staffing levels throughout the day.

Diversity and Inclusion are core values at Signify Health, and fostering a workplace culture reflective of that is critical to our continued success as an organization.
