Who needs an Employee Leave Management solution using Microsoft SharePoint Online?

Employee leave is not a discretionary employee extra or added benefit, it is an entitlement set by national workplace laws and an established part of national employment standards. As a compulsory workplace entitlement, employee leave often falls within the role of business managers, human resource officers and/or accounting personnel.

Traditionally, the employee leave management systems at many organisations have relied on a combination of: paper-based forms; paper-based records, policies and processes; convoluted spreadsheets or manual filing systems; as well as a number of different people, in different departments/locations; involved in the overall leave request and approval process. . Under such systems, leave and employee time-off requests and associated responses can take a long time to process, adding frustration to what is often described as a very cumbersome task. Add to this, considerations about skills shortages arising from leave and; the time it takes to manually search and cross-check documents when considering new leave requests; and the task becomes even more burdensome.

With the above in mind, the use of an intelligent, mostly automated, leave management system; can save organisations a great deal of time and headache, reducing the consequences arising from manual errors or lost paperwork.

Organisations interested in creating a system that ensures: a fair and acceptable employee leave process; and a system capable of meeting the growing needs of employer companies, should consider the Empower IT Employee Leave Software solution using Microsoft SharePoint Online today.
