Without proper management, requests for leave approval can quickly become a headache for the whole company. Signs that this process is far from perfect are usually clear and impossible to ignore: workflows are confused, approval takes a lot of time and you’re not sure about its compliance.

This usually happens when:

  • A company tracks absences manually - on a paper, or using Excel spreadsheets. Paperwork is something every modern company fights with, but we still hear about companies that prefer to do processes in an old fashioned way. These companies don’t see the whole picture of labor data, focusing on smaller processes.

  • Employees don’t know their leave balances and have to check every time-off with the HR team. This makes an HR manager not only responsible for tracking leave records, but also for responding to each request. In this situation, workers are not happy either, because they have to wait for approval from an HR manager even before they booked the time-off. 

  • Approvals are requested by email. It seems progressive until your email is lost in a manager’s inbox, which happens a lot in organizations that don’t have an absence tracking software in place. 

  • Administrators are confused with managing paid and not paid leave, which leads to major payroll mistakes.
