Staff holiday booking system

The online staff holiday request software is designed for demanding employees who want to work more efficiently and those who want visibility and control. Your employees will be able to book any leave of absence: Holidays, Sickness, Work from Home, etc. Moreover, your employees will have access to their holiday entitlement at any moment.

Automated holiday management system

With process automation, you gain more time to focus on strategic activities. The software takes care of the repetitive tasks with every holiday request introduced by your staff:

  • It instantly provides details such as other people that are away on that day and the remaining allowance.
  • The system automatically calculates the number of days requested for various intervals, instantly deducting weekends and bank holidays.
  • Checks with the leave policies and enforce them for every request (i.e., you can disallow staff to take more days than their allowance)
  • Once a request is introduced, managers receive an email or Slack notification with every request automatically.
  • The request will be added to Google/Outlook calendar automatically.
  • The employee records and allowance will be updated.
  • The request will appear within the company calendar.
  • The holiday system will record the request, that will be available within the monthly and yearly holiday, sickness and other absence reports.

Online Holiday Tracker

The HR Holiday system will help with tracking all holidays for all your employees. In this way, you will be able to spot absenteeism and have insights on preventing burnout and plan better the summer and winter period.

The stress-free tracker system offers significant benefits to the HR department that needs to juggle multiple time-consuming tasks. While eliminating the repetitive ones, like updating spreadsheets or answering employee questions regarding allowances, they gain much more time to focus on what matters.
HR leaders must focus on hiring the right people and growing the existing employees while strengthening a thriving company culture focused on innovation and getting things done, not following up on people's holiday requests.
Annual planning and holiday balance reports will provide more flexibility and control within your business.

Frequently asked questions:

How to manage staff holidays?

With LeaveBoard, we have a different approach to monitoring employee holidays. Our system offers an easy way to track staff holidays. We allow employees to register the leave of absence (Holidays, Sick, Unpaid, Maternity, etc.), and the holiday management system automatically generates company calendars across teams, departments, or the entire company. These employee holiday trackers consider the working days, operating hours, bank holidays, and holiday allowance of each employee.

Every time a holiday request is added by staff, the holiday quota and records get updated. At the same time, an email notification is sent to the employee manager according to the approval workflow. Attendance reports ensure business continuity, highlight staffing issues, or help spot presenteeism, absenteeism, or other deviations.

Boost your company's performance with a novel holiday management system that gives you control and helps you get the job done effectively.
