In globalized and digital connected markets enterprises have to respond immediately to customer demands. Therefore flexible utilization of labor hours is a significant key element of an agile enterprise. At the same time in a digitalized society private concerns of employees are expected to get more important. Therefore work assignments and employment contracts have to offer flexible regulations and means of control for the staff also. On the other hand, digital interaction and communication offers new ways to organize work flexible. Within this paper a new mobile application for the support of self-organized and highly flexible labor utilization will be presented. The approach is to involve employees in the personnel planning and scheduling processes by means of a matching and voting process with mobile communication devices and a rule base with a comprehensive set of priority rules which limit the possible work assignments within a legal and economical justified corridor for flexible working hours. Used Criteria are the qualification of employees, the legal restrictions on maximum working hours, the flextime wage records and the personal preferences of the employees.
