Life’s a holiday: How client platforms automate annual leave
As Winter finally relents its grip, and Summer creeps in, employee holidays transform from a trickle into a flood. School holidays and the warmer weather mean people taking some well deserved time off.
For businesses and bureaus, however, booking a two-week break is far from relaxing. The process of annual leave management can still be a manual, spreadsheet, paper-based or, worse, email heavy exercise.
According to our estimates, up to 15% of a payroll bureau’s time is spent handling queries regarding remaining leave balances for employees. That’s time you could be spending elsewhere, providing better service or even taking your own vacation!
BrightPay Connect’s online annual leave tools completely eliminate these cumbersome people management tasks. It’s more than just payroll software, it’s a ready-to-go, easy-to-use HR software solution. HR software shouldn’t be an expensive luxury reserved for big corporations. BrightPay Connect is affordable and designed with small businesses in mind.
The benefits of BrightPay Connect’s online annual leave tools come in three main prongs, enabling:
- Employers to effectively plan their company calendar and staff resources
- Employees to request leave on a portal or employee smartphone app
- Employees to access leave taken and leave remaining records
All the while, leave is automatically recorded on the payroll software and synced to the cloud. It’s easier for everyone: the bureau, the employer and the employee. The annual holiday rush should be a reason to be excited, not an admin nightmare.
