It’s the start of a new year – and, for many companies, a new holiday calendar. But while most employees look forward to their leave entitlement renewing, there are always a few people with days left to spare from the previous year. How your business handles unused holiday can have a major impact on employee relationships.
The new year is a time of new beginnings for companies – often new marketing and sales strategies come into force, and your staff may be starting a new holiday year as well. But rather than just resetting their leave entitlement, this is the ideal moment to look at how well your leave approval processes are functioning, as they could benefit from an overhaul in 2020.
Most companies underestimate the time and effort it takes to keep track of employee leave. Whether you’re an SME with a small team, or a large enterprise with hundreds of staff, the consequences of a poorly managed holiday calendar can be significant to your business.
Keeping track of holiday requests is a small part of business operations, but it takes up a lot more time than many companies realise. Inefficiencies in the leave management process can increase the workload of your managerial and HR staff, frustrate employees, and even lead to costly calendar clashes.
Annual leave is a precious commodity, and every employee wants to make the most of their allowance. So, what if we told you that your team members can take at least 35 days off in 2020 using just 15 days from their entitlement?
Whether you live to work or work to live, everyone needs a holiday. Yet alarmingly, new research by a leading trade union has found that nearly two million Britons aren’t able to use their minimum annual leave entitlement – and the story is the same all over the world.
Festive lights and carol singing might seem a fair way off, but September is the ideal time for organisations to start thinking about the Christmas holidays. An influx of annual leave requests can affect how well your business runs during this critical period – so the sooner you start planning ahead, the better.
It's not uncommon for employees to be absent from work due to ill health or injury. However, when they're away from work for unjustifiable reasons, this is called absenteeism.
