Over 500 million leave requests

Since 2005 when we first started production of WhosOff we have collated a lot of facts, figures, quotes, and stats. Below is a few interesting one's we have liked over the years.

Our history

Since the idea of WhosOff was pen on paper back in 2005, we have kept our core values which run right through our team. We've had fun along the way but our main aim is to give businesses back time to focus on other areas of the company by taking the leave management burden from them.
