We all love our time off and like to organize our holidays to make the best of them. But what happens when at the end of the year employees haven’t used all of their vacation days?
Can I accumulate time off from one year to the other?
Some organizations offer a total number of vacation days at the beginning of the year and you have to use them before it ends, and others have a policy where one can get a maximum number of accrued days depending of how long the employee has been on the company. Generally employers are free to set the accrual method they think best for the organization and the employees.
For example in recent years more and more companies have begun to experiment with their time off policies. Diferent vacation arrangements can be used as an strategic tool to keep their employees engaged and motivated, it can even be used as a method to reduce turnover. With thisin mind have appeared companies with unlimited vacations or vacations as a flexible benefit (where employees can “sell” their time off in exchange for other benefits and the other way arround).
As you can see, then, accrued time off is something most companies do. In those cases a time management software is a perfect solution for you and our new functionality will help you keep track of the vacation days each of your employees has decided to accumulate.
