Managing annual leave in the workplace

Managing annual leave in the workplace - Centric HR

The New Year not only provides an opportunity to reflect on how we will best shed those extra pounds we put on eating all that chocolate over the holidays, but it also brings about the holiday booking season.  The TV adverts and newspapers are packed with discounted travel opportunities and images of sun kissed beaches for us all to dream about and look forward to later in the year.

Managing annual leave can be easy if we know how to navigate it, however there are employers out there that struggle with the calculations and sometimes through no fault of their own make mistakes, ending up giving too much or too little leave.  Having some training and being given some pointers on the calculation methods can save employers from getting into a pickle when working out entitlements.

The Centric HR services can provide managers with basic training on leave calculations and can provide specific examples that relate to your workforce and contract terms.  Our team can support you with working out detailed and complex leave entitlements and help you understand those and why they apply to your employees.

There is also the option to install a self-service booking system for the management of leave, from as little as £13* per month plus VAT, depending on the size of your organisation.  We work with BreatheHR, and use their systems ourselves, and we highly recommend the system to streamline and ease the pressure on you in managing annual leave. If helpful, we can arrange a demo of the system capabilities and show you how easy it is to set up and for your employees to book and have leave approved.

If you would like more information on any of our services including training, Breathe HR or other HR support, please contact us here.

*Based on up to 10 employes and at current system costs, 2023.
