Gone are the days of the endless paperwork associated with annual vacation. Not only have we found a way to alleviate the back and forth headache and hours spent shuffling requests for vacation, we’re keeping it green as well!
The Annual Vacation Bidding module is a seamless extension of the Andgo platform. Organizations are able to facilitate their entire annual vacation process online. Our quota-based system ensures you have the staff you need when you need them. It helps reduce payouts from unused vacation hours. This is all done while eliminating feedback cycles and reducing processing time.
The Annual Vacation module is customized to meet the needs of the organization, with as many or as little approval rounds required. The smart processing dashboard recommends optimal approvals and keeps staff in the loop with real-time updates. Employees receive instant insight into the likelihood of their vacation requests being approved before submitting. Once they submit their request, they can track the status of their requests as the rounds progress.
Employees receive notifications in the event their vacation requests are no longer valid (due to employees with more seniority selecting the same dates). This gives them a chance to update their requests before the round closes. This transparency reduces the feedback cycle and creates trust, which leads to higher stakeholder satisfaction. Also, the streamlined processing provides Managers and Scheduling Staff with substantial time savings.
Annual Vacation Highlights
In 2019, two organizations used the new module and saw significant efficiencies over their one-month vacation booking periods.
- 13,500 employees participated
- 37,000 vacation requests received
- 1,600,000 vacation hours booked
- 84% of top requests approved
An Andgo partner who used to manually process annual vacation found the paper-driven process to be incredibly labour intensive. The approvers would lock themselves away for weeks and work through all the submissions to ensure they awarded vacation in the proper order. Since partnering with Andgo, the approval process has been streamlined and it now takes hours, rather than weeks to complete. Andgo was able to reduce the costs of administering annual vacation while increasing employee satisfaction!
