Chasing up employees to use their unused time off balance

When the end of your company holiday year approaches, how do you make sure your employees check and use up any unused balances? 

One way you can do so in Sage HR is to use  Announcements to send a reminder to employees to check this.  This is another great communication tool to ensure your employees see important updates or messages.

Here’s an example of what you could send: 

You can also set email notifications for these and view who has read the announcement too!

How to allow unused annual leave to be carried into 2021

Due to Covid-19, many people have taken less time off due to lockdown and travel restrictions or because they have been furloughed. As a result of this, many businesses have allowed their employees to carry over some unused annual leave for next year.

If you are considering doing the same, it is easy to configure time off policy settings to allow a maximum amount of carry over, as well as set an expiry period for it.

📎NOTE: If you want to do this you must make sure any pending time off requests for 2020 are approved or declined before the end of the year.
