People are stressed. People are overworked. It’s the 21th century, and we can do better. If we have anything to say about it (and trust us; we do), it’s this: the devil is in the details. The little things trip us up. Work email accounts must now be accessed through home, extra hours are required to finish projects, vacation-time conference calls are the norm, and on and on.

As we lose the barrier between leisure time and work time, our quality of life suffers. Relaxation begins to fit all too comfortably, hand-in-hand, with guilt. We at SubItUp think it’s time for change.

Paper may be quainter, but let’s face it: tradition takes time. Between the hours you spend hammering out dates and times, printing, placing schedules, speaking with employees, processing requests, and facilitating hour swaps, you’re investing a lot of time just to get the job done in the old-fashioned way. So much so, in fact, that it adds up to a sizable chunk of time at the end of the year: 32 hours. 4 work days. Wow.

Behind the swoosh of every high-speed roller coaster and tuft of cotton candy, there’s a grittier, more mundane reality: staffing. Amusement parks require more than popcorn to keeping the lines moving and the food booths slinging fries. Oftentimes, a park is a combination of many different “departments” working as a cohesive unit: concessions, maintenance, security, ride operations, and ticket sales. That makes full coverage a heroic effort—and if somebody needs time off, it just makes solving the scheduling puzzle even more challenging.
