Whew! We made it through another winter and we’re moving quickly through spring. When are you leaving for your beach vacation?! Maybe you have a countdown calendar on your desk or an app on your phone to let you know how many days you have left. Either way, you aren’t the only one with a vacation countdown.
It’s important for employees to take time off. It allows them to relax and recharge so that they can return to work feeling refreshed and ready to take on whatever tasks come their way.
Simplifi HR Solutions is here with a few ideas that will help this vacation season to be a little more manageable in your office.
Paid Time Off Policies and Hints
- Be Proactive: Be clear on when vacation requests are due. This will allow you to plan for any gaps in coverage you may encounter this summer.
- PTO Policies – Employee Reminder: This could as simple as sending an email regarding the current Vacation/PTO hours available for each employee. This is a perfect opportunity to include the Vacation/PTO policy and to let the employee know to reach out with any questions they may have.
- Be Fair-minded: Some companies go by first come first serve and others go by seniority, either way the process needs to be consistent to avoid favoritism or discrimination.
Now that you have a few tips towards a stress free summer at the office. Grab your swimsuit, sunscreen and beach bag and get your toes in the sand!!
