HR Tip of The Week: 4 Tips for preventing employee vacation scheduling nightmares!

  1. Discuss your employee vacation policy during the hiring and orientation process and provide employees with written vacation policies and procedures.
  2. Set a deadline for submitting vacation requests that gives you enough time to project how employee absences might affect production schedules and delivery dates to resolve any conflicts.
  3. Prepare for the absences. If colleagues will cover vacationers’ jobs, make sure those taking time off provide a summary of work in progress, major responsibilities, key contact information, how to access related files, and other pertinent data to meet crucial deadlines.
  4. Allow workers in identical positions to trade off vacation dates among themselves, so long as it won’t jeopardize production schedules or quality of work.
