Despite the widespread availability of online and web-based systems for recording and monitoring employee leave and absence, many organisations still require employees to fill out and file paperwork in order to request time off.
This not affects productivity by creating unnecessary, time-consuming paperwork for both the employee and the manager that has to approve the request, it makes it difficult to accurately monitor how many days’ holiday each employee has taken and to ensure employees do not take more days’ off than they’re entitled to every year.
Using a paper-based system, it’s also difficult to keep track when employees are going to be away and to see who will be in and out of the office on any working day.
A time and cost-saving alternative is to implement an automated, web-based system for recording and monitoring leave in your organisation. You can learn more here.
