Shift workers are an integral part of many workplaces, but can often be overlooked. The nature of their roles mean that shift staff often feel like they lack information and opportunities.
They have less access to knowledgeable day-based staff members. They can also experience bottlenecks because decisions need to be run past management and other departments that only work during the day.
