Self-rostering in healthcare

In the ideal case self-rostering gives employees an opportunity to plan their own shifts and hence combine work and personal life seamlessly. In self-rostering employees pick their own shifts while typically following commonly agreed rules.

In practice self-rostering requires very specific conditions and mindset to work well. In addition the process takes a lot of time from both employees and the roster manager(s).

All too often self-rostering ends up in a situation, where completing rosters is difficult and employees need to make a lot of sacrifices with regard to their original wishes.

Because of this, the original idea of autonomous employees often fades away and required compromises or even outright competition between employees have a marked effect on both well-being at work and work-life balance.


Vuorox combines self-rostering with automatic roster planning while treating all employees equally.

What makes Vuorox different is its AI based engine, which is able to find optimal solutions within the nearly countless number of possible options.

With its capabilities Vuorox makes sure roster planning does not need to be a zero-sum game, where one’s advantage is another’s loss. The result is a win-win for both the employer and the employees.

Employees add their wishes via a mobile app (or a browser on a computer) wherever and whenever they like. In addition to the explicit wishes, with time Vuorox learns the implicit wants and needs of each employee better and better.

Our goal is that Vuorox will be able to anticipate your preferences for a future roster as well as you can. Or maybe even better!
