The time before christmas is always a big challenge for the retail sector. This year especially, shift planning is becoming increasingly difficult, due to the ever changing COVID-19 regulations. Stores have to consider restrictions regarding minimum distance, hygiene concepts and early closing times. But, how can Christmas still be a jolly and festive season during these stressing times?

 A high personnel demand as well as changing duty rosters are a quite common during Christmas. While stores were able to manage all these challenges in the past, they face completely new circumstances in the year 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has especially influenced day-today-business operations. On the one hand, retail firms have to comply with constantly changing and not clearly formulated legal regulations. On the other, an increase of sick days due to health complaints or forced Quarantines are making personnel planning increasingly difficult.
