It has been normally seen that in the traditional system of leave applications, delays in acknowledging the application followed by its approval and sometimes rejection without specifying reasons, are bound to happen.
Some of the Real Challenges in the leave management process are:
- Employees were uninformed about their leave balances – A Typical HR department received more than 100 queries each week about employee leave balances. It consumed a lot of time and kept HR away from focusing on core business activities that mattered the most. On the other hand, employees had to wait for long to know their leave balances. A continuous pattern of delay in the leave approval increased frustration amongst employees.
- Employees are also unaware of their team leaves – When the employee has to apply for a leave, he is unaware of whether other employee from same team has applied for leave on the same day. This includes lot of time spending issues, enquiring each employee in his team about it.
- Line Managers were not able to manage leaves of their team members – Managers were unable to get insights about the availability of the team members in a specific time period. Also were not able to identify the patterns of leave requests of employees who take undue advantage of the leave policy. Managers not able to get any alert for the leave request from the employee.
- Increased payroll errors due to no proper Leave Rejoin Process – There was no proper documentation on Leave rejoin, whether the employee was back to work after his leave period. This caused lot of payroll errors.
