If you still require your employees to fill out and file paperwork in order to request time off, there is the constant danger that holiday forms will be completed incorrectly or will be mislaid.
If that happens, the employee’s leave will not be properly recorded, resulting in a difference of opinion between the employee and their line manager over the amount of holiday the employee has booked and the number of days they are still entitled to take. Valuable time is then lost while a reconciliation exercise is carried out.
Using a paper-based system, it can also be all too easy for a line manager to incorrectly calculate the amount of annual leave an employee still has left to take in a calendar year. As a result, employees can end up either taking more days off in a year than they are supposed to, or take less than their entitled amount.
By switching from a paper-based system for booking and authorising staff holidays
to a web-based system such as LeaveMaster, you can eliminate these costly holiday admin errors.
To book time off using LeaveMaster, rather than filling out and filing holiday forms, employees simply log into an easy-to-use, web-based application and request their leave online.
Each employee’s holiday request can be authorised or denied by their line manager at the click of a button. And, if approved, the leave is then added to a leave calendar, which allows everyone in the office to see who has booked leave and when.
Because LeaveMaster eliminates holiday paperwork, automatically calculates leave balances and shows you precisely how many days of their annual allowance each employee has taken and how many days they have remaining, there is no danger of holiday forms ever being lost or of employees taking more time off than they are supposed to.
