1. A spreadsheet a day keeps your sanity at bay
Classic HR management for booking and tracking team leave involves spreadsheet upon spreadsheet upon spreadsheet.
Now, no disrespect towards spreadsheets - we’ve got a lot of love for formulas - but they’re not very user-friendly, and they give rise to a world of pain around access rights and accidental overwriting. Oh, and don’t even bother trying to edit one on your mobile phone.
Fortunately today’s tech means that spreadsheets for absence management are a thing of the past.
2. Everybody loves paperwork...
Filling in forms to request leave is not only an unnecessary dig at the environment, it’s also incredibly inefficient. By taking your absence management online, you can spend less time filing and more time figuring out how to change the world. Or eating cake!
3. Questions? Questions? Why are there always so many questions?
Every time a member of staff wants to book time off but doesn’t have oversight of their own allowance or approval process, you get asked a ton of questions. Emails clogging up your inbox. Phone calls late at night. Confusion over what happens when they have to take sick leave at the last minute.
We’ve got a vendetta against late-night phone calls and clogged-up inboxes caused by uncertainties around how to book leave and how much leave is available.
