At a few of the jobs I had in college, we didn't use a leave management system, and it meant ensuing chaos at times. Keeping track of vacations, doctor appointments, and sick days were not easy. Usually it was a forgotten conversation that took place weeks prior. There are numerous benefits of using leave management within your company. Now every time I log in to request time off, I think about how easy it is to track what time I have left. Here are 3 benefits of using leave management that you and your employees will love.
I Know Exactly How Much Time I Have
Leave management is a great to way to let your employees know how much time they are given during the year. I can view time earned, taken, and what I have left all from one screen. Using an online leave management system is a precise, accurate, and very transparent way for your employees to control their own paid time off. At the beginning of the year, I can see how many hours I have accrued and plan accordingly for any vacations I may take during the year.
Requesting Time Off is Convenient
Not only is it convenient for your employees, it is convenient for managers who approve paid time off (pto) requests. It can allow your company to move toward becoming paperless. Receiving electronic requests can vastly reduce your paperwork and save you money and time. If I wake up sick I can send a pto request to my manager that can be approved quickly. I don't have to make a phone call or send an email to my manager and hope they remember to accept my request. They can just click a button and I can work on getting better.
Better Coordination of Group Scheduling
Most online leave management systems will have a group scheduling feature. This allows for a quick snapshot of who is working and when. Say an employee calls in sick for an important shift, instead of stressing out over who will take the shift by contacting everyone in your organization, you can use the group scheduling feature. It will give you a view of who is already working and what time they are working. By utilizing this feature, you can achieve better coordination within your organization and stop stressing out over people calling in sick.
Instead of focusing on leave management you can now focus on more important things, your vacation time! If you want to learn more about leave management contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
