Leave management is one of the most undermined HR activities, which takes up a fair bit of the HR team’s time. In any organization, employees are very sensitive to the company’s leave policy, as well as the organization’s attitude towards leave-taking. Therefore, adopting a Leave Management system can make this process transparent and systematic, and improve employee connect. A Leave Management system is a software that streamlines and automates all workflows pertaining to leaves or absence from work. E.g. an employee can submit a request for leave, have that request reviewed and approved/declined, view his own leave records, add comments, seek chatbot’s help on the go etc.
With an LMS, employees don’t need to keep emailing HR for their leave records, they can simply ‘self-service’ their own leave data or apply for leave right from their smartphones. Managers can view attendance & leave records of all their direct reports. Functionalities can be built in where managers can apply for proxy leave on behalf of their team members or even approve the entire team’s leaves in bulk.
