    Business Health Check is all about ensuring you are using the best shift pattern to meet your current operational requirements. As part of this service we will assess your current operational needs, and then compare this with your current shift pattern. We will then evaluate the shift pattern and recommend any improvements. If the current shift pattern is not fit for purpose then we will suggest an alternative shift pattern and an evaluation of how the new shift pattern will fit into your business.
