Benefits of the automated leave management system
An automated leave management system would be an excellent investment with numerous long-term benefits. Some of them include:
Bid goodbye to paperwork
Leave management on paper is tedious, not to mention time-consuming. You need to place leave requests on paper, wait for their approval from the manager, store the leave requests on physical files, etc.
With a cloud-based automated leave management system taking care of these processes in a few clicks, employees, managers, and HR teams can breathe a sigh of relief.
Save copious amounts of time.
With increased automation, you have more time in your hand, which was hitherto unavailable. This will help you contribute meaningfully to strategic decision-making, plan employee onboarding better, and focus on providing a kickass employee experience.
Avoid manual errors
Manual work is prone to human error. It can be a mistake in the number of leaves, erroneous leave processing in payroll, or delayed approval due to policy violation. An automated leave management system will automatically process leave balances, calculate the unpaid leave for payroll, notify approvers of the policy violations (if any) and accelerate the approval process.
A leave management system lets employees plan their leaves well and help the team plan better for their unavailability. Managers no longer have to worry about last-minute work delegation, and employees no longer need to overwork to compensate for the lack of personnel. Everything is planned and executed accordingly.
Better decision making
The nature and pattern of leaves can talk a lot about the employees and their relationship with work. For instance, unhappy employees tend to take more leaves. With advanced leave reporting, you can identify the absenteeism trends, talk to them and offer solutions. Similarly, you can spot the defaulters, take corrective measures, and ensure the smooth running of the organization.
Improved policy and legal compliance
Amidst busy work, it is difficult for managers to keep tabs on policy compliance and manage leave approvals. A leave management system will check for policy compliance and notify approvers, helping them make quicker decisions and ensuring compliance.
