Markdale, ON – Chapman’s Ice Cream recently announced a permanent change in their shift work scheduling to accommodate multiple requests from workers, improve employee well being and increase productivity. The Company has now eliminated their day/afternoon/night rotating shifts and offer two options: straight nights and rotating day/afternoon shifts.

“As a nation-wide supplier, we live in a 24/7 marketplace with continuously growing demand and consumer expectations,” said Ashley Chapman, VP of Chapman’s Ice Cream “We are constantly working on upgrading technology, equipment and processes to improve our productivity, but our employees have always been the core of the business. We hope these changes will be good for everyone.”

New scheduling policies are aimed to offer Chapman’s employees more consistency, stability, and more normalcy to their personal lives. The Company hopes to improve employee work satisfaction and decrease employee fatigue by eliminating the ongoing need to adjust their biological clock to rotating shifts.

All employees are provided with comprehensive Benefit Plans with first class coverage for Health, dental, vision, life insurance, and disabilities.
