Frequently asked questions - FAQs
Q. Why is leave management important?
Q. Can we produce reports on the type of leave?
A. If your company isn’t managing annual leave properly, it can cause all sorts of problems. For example, the process of staff members of requesting time off, getting approval and recording it takes up far too much time – getting in the way of higher value tasks.
Failing to record leave accurately can also result in errors occurring. For instance, staff may take more time off than their total holiday occasion, or two key team members may book the same week off, leaving you short staffed. That’s why so many restaurant owners choose to log all staff absences through leave management software like WhosOff.
Q. Can we restrict leave on certain days?
A. Yes, you can. In fact, WhosOff encourages our users to make the most of the data being tracked through our leave management system.
By managing all your staff movements in one place, you can identify key trends and use factual insights to shape your company holiday policies. And you can share data with senior leaders, so they can see the impact of everything from paid time off to the amount of overtime completed by each restaurant or individual employee.
Q. Can we customise leave types?
A. Yes. some restaurant owners prefer to block out peak trading periods or manage certain days of the year differently – such as Christmas and Bank Holidays.
You can also put restrictions in place between team members, to stop two people booking the same time off. Visit our policies and restrictions page to find out more.
