Summer and early Fall sees a swell in vacation requests. From small businesses to large corporations, organizations of all sizes will have to field a number of time-off requests from employees. If you haven’t implemented a strategy to calculate vacation pay for hourly employees, it can feel like a daunting task. Read onward to learn how to accurately calculate vacation pay for hourly employees.
Good morning Everyone and welcome to today's presentation on Dominion System’s Time Off software. My name is Claire Manz and I’m your product strategist here at Dominion. For those of you who don't know me, I hope I can meet you soon. Today I'd like to walk you guys through a couple of the different sections of our Time Off platform. We have an employee side that I'd like to start with so we can get a feel for what the employee can do, how they can request their own time off, how they can manage their own time from that portal through our Employee Self Service section of our system, but then also how either an administrator or a supervisor has access to manage their employees time and approve that time and manage the employee time from the supervisor or administration side. It's very simple to use and I'm very excited for those of you who don't have this piece to be able to utilize it.
Holiday season is quickly approaching. Do you have an effective, organized way to manage your employees’ time off requests? Depending on the industry you are in, it might be inevitable to have staff work during holidays. Let’s face it, no one wants to skip Thanksgiving or Christmas because they have to be at work, so be prepared to receive many time off requests from your employees. Handling employee time off scheduling conflicts can be a nightmare, but some planning and clear policies can make it easier for you.
As you may already know, there are many different types of payroll processing: ranging from in-house to outsourcing, to even using a CPA. You’ve probably have heard of many different payroll service companies, but do you know exactly what they do and what they offer? Just like their name suggests, payroll companies ensure that employees are paid on time and that all of the employers stay compliant. Obviously, payroll is more than just writing checks, and a good payroll company will offer more than just that. Depending on the size of the company and the software’s capabilities, there are a variety of different things that payroll companies do for their customers.
Now that Millennials are making their way into the workforce, companies are looking for new ways to beat the competition and attract the best talent. They offer great benefits such as health, vision, and dental insurance, 401K match, flexible schedules, volunteer time off, and paid time off. Paid time off (PTO) is one of the main benefits young people look for when applying looking to start their careers, and unlimited paid time off has become even more popular. But, despite its popularity, only approximately 1% of U.S. companies have established an unlimited PTO plan. Some of the companies included in that 1% are Netflix, GE, Duo Security, and LinkedIn. Offering unlimited PTO has its pros and its cons, and these can help you find out if implementing an unlimited PTO plan is the right move for your business.
With Summer quickly approaching managers and HR departments everywhere are beginning to see an influx of time off requests. Family vacations, weekend getaways, and the Friday half-days are suddenly back and it’s becoming increasingly harder to schedule employees and keep up with who has what day off. This isn’t a new problem, it happens every year and every year we manage to mix up someone’s time off and try to schedule them to work on their vacation. This year let’s look at a different approach; leave management software paired with group scheduling is a great solution to your scheduling headaches, giving you a clear picture of employee availability when creating your weekly schedule.
It’s the holiday season again and your employees are taking time off. If you don’t have an employee self service portal in place with a leave management system, requesting and approving time off can be quite a messy experience for both employees and managers. Employees may have thought they communicated their vacation plans to management or could have miscalculated their personal time off hours. Managers or supervisors may have missed requests, or overlapped or left gaps in their scheduling, but with a solid leave management system in place incidents like those will help eliminate human error by adding three fundamental benefits that will keep PTO requests and hours on track.
