Nearly 90% of organizations stated that a paid time off program is vital to growth and retention. Before we explore what employees want from a Time Off software, let’s dive into four common paid time off options.

The following is part 1 of a transcription from a recent demo we did that covers Dominion’s Time Off software. Watch the full demo for free here!

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.
