Creating Various Leave Types for The Employee Leave Management System

It will make the job easier as you don’t have to create policies every now and then for every department. Rather, you can create 2-3 leave types and customize them while assigning them to any department or employee.
Creating & Managing Leave Requests

All that your employees need to do is apply for leave from the HR frontend that they are entitled to and you will get an automatic leave request submitted on your admin’s dashboard. And then only upon your approval, the leave will be sanctioned.
Leave Calendar & Holidays
Leave calendar is a guide on which it shows the leave days and the monthly holidays that the employees have. It will highlight all the government holidays that you have input and also the personal leave taken by the employees. This helps in planning ahead and apply for leave more smartly.
Also, to save you further trouble you can easily create or import holidays. That way you can create your own holiday while importing the government ones. This saves you a lot of time.

Moreover, the system will also help to relieve the stress of the HR department while giving the employees the break they deserve while staying within the leave policy.

How WP ERP’s Employee Leave Management System Resolves Issues to Your HR & Leave Management Problems
Any employee leave management system encompasses the processes and policies of managing employee time-off requests, such as vacation, holidays, sick leave, and parental leave etc.
A customary leave management process:
- Increases employee satisfaction and retention
- Creates policy consistency across the organization
- Ensures compliance with labor laws
- Reduces the number of management errors
- Increases productivity and efficiency
WP ERP’s leave management system can help you with those remarks quite easily. And here are the ways how.
Create Custom Leave Policy
When you run a company you need to manage various departments and employees. Obviously, all of them have different roles along with different shifts. Some works at night shifts while some of them work in the day shift.
So, when it comes to the leave policy you can not apply a global leave policy for every department apart from the government holidays. You need to create different leave policies for different departments.
For example, the Support department gets 7 casual days while other departments get 10. As you can see the leave type is the same “Casual Leave”. But the policy is different.
So, what you need is to create two different leave policies for the same leave type. And this is very much possible with WP ERP’s HR module.
All In One Dashboard
The dashboard is where you will get a visual representation of all the data and information about your employees, their leave requests, etc. You can overview all the data and decide your action accordingly. That’s why it is important to have a dashboard that will instantly give highlight all the related information in one place.
Then how about a dedicated leave overview dashboard where employees and of course admins can view all the leave related information? WP ERP has that. The profile section of every employee has a leave dashboard where they can view:
- Leave types & days
- Leaves spent
- How many leaves available
- Leave validity period
This helps the employees to plan out and apply for their leaves accordingly. Thus this helps manage the leave of employees better.
Simple Leave Applying Process
No one wants a complicated process.
The reason for having an employee leave management system is to make the process smooth and simple. That includes the leave applying process. WP ERP has a simple leave applying procedure.
To apply for a leave, just click on the Take a Leave button, select date, period, state your reason, and hit the Send Leave Request. That’s it.
