Annual leave calendar FAQs

Why do small businesses need an annual leave calendar? 

Arrow

All companies, no matter their size, need to find a system to record their employees’ time off.

This is important for a few reasons:

  • To manage employee absence in a way that’s fair and efficient

  • To be able to accurately calculate holiday allowance for your team members

  • To ensure you can plan work efficiently, taking into account when and for how long someone will be off on leave.

Having a clear calendar outlining people’s time off is essential for fast-paced small businesses with scarce resources and no time to waste.  

That’s why many growing startups opt for an automated annual leave calendar like Charlie’s for time off tracking:

  • Because it gives them complete visibility of their team’s time off…

  • … while also removing the need for any time consuming manual work to be kept up to date.

Why switch to an automated annual leave calendar? 

Arrow

No matter how sophisticated your Google Sheets holiday tracker may be, using spreadsheets and calendar apps to manage time off still requires a lot of manual work. 

Without a centralised place to manage time off requests and holiday allowance calculations, you’ll have to manually copy and paste information from all your spreadsheets, emails and documents onto your team’s individual calendars (for example by adding annual leave to your Outlook calendar).    

This process is very time consuming and inefficient.

An alternative solution is to use HR software like CharlieHR to manage your team’s time off. With Charlie, annual leave management is automated and all in one place:

  • The team can request annual leave through the system

  • Charlie calculates holiday allowance for you

  • The centralised company calendar is updated automatically with your team’s time off, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
