Sandwich Rule

The sandwich rule is a popular leave policy around the world. Many companies have a sandwich leave policy.

You can easily create these leave policies using our employee leave management system.

When your company is growing, so is the number of employees. And, many of them will join in the middle of the year or even at the end of the year.

Obviously, they will not be entitled the same number of leaves as the employees who joined before them. That’s where leave segregation comes in.

How WP ERP’s Advanced Employee Leave Management System Resolves Your HR & Leave Issues

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
Leave Dashboard

This helps the employees to plan out and apply for their leaves accordingly. Thus this helps manage the leave of employees better.
