Have you ever considered the idea of online leave and holiday planners for a business? On this page, we want to take a look at what these fantastic things bring to the table. But first, let us talk about what one actually is.
What is an online holiday planner?
If you own a business in Europe, then you legally need to give your staff time off each year. The amount of time will be dependent on how many hours that they work. An online holiday planner like Leave Wizard allows you to keep a log of the time that your staff book off. Since it is online, you will be able to access the system wherever you have an internet connection. It really is a ridiculously simple system.
Easy to Update
One of the biggest problems with the traditional way of recording holidays and the like is that they are complicated to update. We have seen big businesses use nothing more than paper to record when people have time away from work. Try updating this and it is difficult. The problem is; only one person is going to have access to this system at a time. If that person is not around, or you can’t find the paper where everything is being recorded, you are going to have issues.
With an online planner, as we mentioned before, as long as you have access to the internet, you will be able to update the system. It really is a fantastically simple method. Of course, you do not want everybody updating the system on a whim, which is why you should opt for a system where you are able to give special privileges to everybody.
Easy to Generate Reports
As a business owner, you need to know when your staff are taking time away from work. This is important for a couple of reasons:
- You want to know that your staff are taking the right amount of time away from work. You want to know that they are not overbooking their holiday. It is not necessarily their fault if they accidentally book too many days away from work, but it is something that you will want to ensure does not happen. This is going to be difficult to do with those diary recordings.
- You will be able to work out when staff have time booked away from work. This will ensure that you are able to get cover in. Even the largest business is going to find it difficult if it ends up booking the same people off business for even a couple of days. You will fall behind in your work. This means that you are going to be kissing goodbye to some profit. You probably do not want that to happen at all.
Choose the Right System
We recommend that you do put effort into ensuring that you select the right system for the job. There are plenty out there, but choose one that will be easy to use.
