Staff holiday and absence planning has never been easier to manage
The ideal staff/employee holiday management and absence management software for any small or medium sized business
The Trivaeo Holiday Manager application is an easy to use holiday planning and management tool suitable for any small or medium sized business. Working closely alongside the main Human Resources application suite it enables your employees to easily manage their own holiday or absence requests online. Your employees can book staff time off and log absence in just a few clicks. The application comes with a prebuilt approvals process or you can adapt it and pick your own. The default approvals process selects the 'line manager' of each employee as the approval point. Each employee can see a real-time overview of their entitlement to holiday based on statutory or personal entitlements including national holidays, bank holidays and more.
Holiday Manager makes is very easy and straightforward for your staff to manage their own holiday requests. It provides an instant line managers view of his or her terms planned holidays. Online holiday requests and approvals are done in real-time. Permission based rules define what each employee can see about their 'teams' holiday information of they can plan and request their leave sensibly.
Set your own Booking Types and colour codes for the company holiday calendar. Extend it further by recording your own Public Holidays or add your own customised Public Holiday days for each year. For each departement in your business you can define your own working days and the default 'weekend' days to easily reflect different working patterns for days taken off that do not count against the employees entitlement. Your business may also set the 'default' number of working statutory holidays each employee is entitled to by default or override at a departmental or employee level. You may also set the number of Bank Holidays that are added to each years holiday entitlement. The result is a beautifully flexible holiday and planned absence management software solution, available online 24x7 for your business so that it can intelligently and efficiently manage holidays and absense. Managers and Line Managers can even enter holiday bookings on behalf of their team members or department if you prefer to keep things more centralised rather than self-service based!
The Holiday Manager application forms part of the eHuman Resources Management Suite. It makes the online employee holiday approvals process quick and seamless. This means your business will no longer struggle with spreadsheet based planning, complex leftover leave or other complex calculations. Everything is automated and each employee can quickly see their own entitlements, balances and taken holiday information. You can even set it up so that each employee can see the holiday calendar of their team so that they can intelligently slot in their planned absence or holiday requests themselves. They can change their mind and cancel or edit their bookings which causes them to go back into the defined approvals process. Seamless, easy, quick and effective. It's capabilities include;
Holiday Manager is a component of eHuman Resources. Your company has the option to purchase eHuman Resources Management for each employee which will give them all access to Holiday Manager alongside many other core elements such as 360 degree reviews, absence management, automated organisation chart, Objectives, Expense Manager and Timesheets or you may elect to purchase the Holiday Manager as a standalone application for each employee if you are sure they will never need access to the wider eHuman Resources features at the same time. For many companies buying eHuman Resources is the most cost effective option available as it covers all possible business needs per employee in one go.
Employees will routintely review their own (or their teams or departments calendar of holiday bookings). Having identified a suitable date to start their holiday they click on that date and the form to submit a new request opens. They set the start and end dates and reasons for the holiday (or other supporting information). On saving it moves on to step 2.
According to the details of the selected workflow the holiday request is submitted into an approvals process. You may setup your own preferred notifications and alerts so that the relevant stakeholders in your business are informed of the newly submitted holiday request. It may either be declined or approved in accordance with your policies at the time
Once a holiday request has been reviewed by the line manager or other stakeholder as defined by your own process the employee is notified of the outcome (approved or declined with any supporting notes). They are notified both in an eMail and to their My World dashboard inside the solution. Any necessary manipulation of running totals of remaining entitlements are automatically adjusted
The Holiday Manager application is actually a foundation building block of the larger eHuman Resources Suite. Breaking it out on its own makes it available as a stand alone application for use by companies that don't need the much broader eHuman Resources capabilities for their employees. If your company uses or plans to use the objectives, 360 degree reviews, absence management, timesheets, expenses or holiday management as a routine function of your employees activities then we strongly recommend purchasing the eHuman Resources application for each employee as it will work out to be much more cost effective over time.
Whilst a very simple application from an employees perspective the employees do love it because it gives them complete control over their holiday bookings. The ability to review the other bookings from their team-mates or department if you set up the permission groups to enable them to do this) results in your employees being able to self-service their own holiday bookings needs without constantly pressuring their line management for approvals.
The tight integration into the calendar, eHuman Resources, alerts, notifications and My World bring it alive, especially as an online application that is available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week for each employee that has a login to your business applications suite. The at a glance views of how departments are resourced at your tigthter seasons like Christmas and Summer Breaks really helps the line manager to do a better job of making sure your business can maintain its promise to its customers. Better oversight results in better business decisions, better planning and better operational flexiblity.
