How to control holidays in a company?

Proper holiday tracking in a company is essential to ensure efficient management of employees' time off. Here are some steps you can take to keep track of holidays:

  1. Establish a holiday policy: Define a clear and transparent holiday policy in your company. Include aspects such as how to request leave, minimum notice period, accrual of leave and any other relevant rules.

  2. Implement a holiday manager: Use a tool or system that facilitates the leave request process. This could be a human resource management system (HRMS) or a simple shared spreadsheet where employees can log their requests. But in all honesty, a leave software, such as OpenHR, will make it much easier for you.

  3. Record holiday requests: Keep a centralised record of all holiday requests. Be sure to include the start and end date of the requested leave, as well as any related comments or approvals.

  4. Establish a holiday calendar: Create a shared holiday calendar showing approved holiday dates for each employee. This will help avoid conflicts and make it easier to plan work in the absence of employees.

  5. Manage scheduling conflicts: If there are conflicts in leave dates requested by different employees, establish a clear procedure for resolving them. This could involve prioritisation based on seniority of request, shift rotation or other equitable criteria.

  6. Keep track of holiday days used: Keep an up-to-date record of holiday days used by each employee. This will allow you to know the balance of days available and ensure that employees do not exceed their allotted holiday days.

  7. Communicates and reminds employees of leave policies: Regularly informs employees about leave-related policies and procedures. Send periodic reminders about accrual and use of holiday days, and respond to any questions or concerns employees may have.
Remember that each company may have its own particularities, so it is important to adapt these steps to the specific needs and policies of your organisation.
Why use a holiday manager?

Managing holidays and absences with an HR software offers numerous advantages and benefits for both employees and the company. Some of the reasons why it is advisable to use HR software for this task include:

  1. Automation and efficiency: HR software streamlines the leave request and approval process and makes it easier. Employees can submit their requests electronically and managers can review and approve them more efficiently. This eliminates the need to handle requests and records on paper or via email, reducing errors and time spent on administrative tasks.

  2. Centralised access and visibility: With an HR software, both employees and managers have access to a centralised calendar showing the approved leave dates of all employees. This allows for better staff planning and management, as you can avoid conflicts and ensure that there are always enough staff available.

  3. Accurate recording and tracking: HR software keeps an accurate record of each employee's leave and absences. This allows tracking of the balance of used and available holiday days, as well as other types of absences, such as medical leave or sick days. The information is updated automatically.

  4. Compliance: By using HR software to manage leave and absence, it is easier to comply with labour laws and regulations related to time off and absence. The software can be configured to automatically enforce company policies and relevant labour regulations, thus avoiding potential violations.

  5. Information and analysis: HR software provides useful data and analysis on leave and absence in the company. Reports can be generated showing leave usage trends, accumulated balances, frequent absences and other relevant data. This information can be valuable for strategic decision making related to human resource planning and personnel management.

In short, using HR software to manage leave and absence provides automation, efficiency, visibility, accuracy, compliance and data analytics. This makes it easier to manage for both employees and the business, enabling better control and planning of time off and absence.
