The festive period and end of the year is fast approaching This is why in our November newsletter, we run through some tasks you may need to do at this time of year. Such as how to check unused annual leave of employees, how to remind employees to use up their remaining days off, and how to onboard new employees who are joining as Christmas temps.


Check unused days

With the end of the year approaching, you may be keen to check whether employees still have time off to take. There are a few different ways you can check employees' remaining available days to use.


Reminding employees about remaining annual leave

Assigning tasks

If there are specific employees you know have unused days off left that they need to use you can add a task for them to complete. You can assign the task to one or multiple employees.

Announcements

Another useful way to remind employees to check and use their unused time off towards the end of your company's holiday year is to use  Announcements. You can use this communication tool create a post in Sage HR about the importance of them needing to use of their remaining days, and letting them know if they will or won't be carried over.

You can set it so that employees get notified about this by email too.

Here’s an example of what you could send:
