Leave management module features overview
Key part of the HRIS employee self service portal, the web based leave management system module is organized on 6 different pages :
- the employee page where each employee can submit a new leave request, follow up on their requests in progress and access their leave entitlement status (based on the real time calculation of annual leave rights performed by the software).
- the overtime declaration page where the employee confirms the overtime completed.
- the manager page where each manager validates the leave requests and overtime declarations submitted by their team employees.
- the individual administration page for the leave module (HR Manager) where the administrator can add and delete leave requests for any company employee.
- the global administration page module for the leave request where the administrator can validate or refuse all pending leave requests in batches.
- the report page where the administrator of the leave management module can access the dashboard with a detailed report for a given period of leave taken, entitlement and balance for each employee.
My Intranet, HR portal for paid leave management, allows different types of leave to be efficiently managed. Thanks to the schedule available for each employee, the module allows you to take care of part-time employees.
With this fully configurable module, you will simplify HR management of administrative tasks. And by opting for SaaS mode, the HR department will not have to worry about the technical maintenance of this HR software.
On this page, the employee accesses the different information they need to follow up on their leave. They can also submit a new request via the leave request form. The leave management module administrator can use this page, with each employee profile, to add or delete leave requests for each employee.
The leave entitlement status table gives the calculation for each type of leave. It provides a quick view of the leave days earned, days requested, days taken and the balance, including the intended period for each type of leave. The calculations for this table are made dynamically everytime the page is updated. It is crucial to notice that this table will only show the types of leave which the employee is entitled to according to their category.
The table with the leave and absence records gives the different leave requests submitted as well as their status. The employee can then delete the requests assuming their starting date is in the future.
Finally, you can submit your leave request by selecting the starting date and the end date (if different from the starting date), select leave type and then submit the request. If there is a sufficient balance available (based on leave earned and taken), the request will be taken into account and submitted for validation to the manager (or in the event of their absence, the person with delegated authority). This easy to use leave request form allows to submit a new leave request in just 3 clicks.
The software can be configured to take into consideration bank holidays.
On this page, the employee can also manage the time savings account and credit days during periods defined by the Human Resources department.
Declaration of overtime recovery hours
For the time and attendance management, depending on the configuration, either the employee declares their overtime directly or the HR centralize performs individual declarations on behalf of employees.
To do that, you simply have to fill out the form by indicating the date with the starting hour of a typical day, the usual ending hour and the actual ending hour of that day. The program automatically calculates the difference between the usual ending hour and the actual ending hour to determine the employee’s number of overtime hours.
Leave and overtime validation
On this page, supervisors can approve or reject leave requests submitted by their team members. This is the process approval step. If on leave themselves, a manager can delegate another company employee to validate leave requests submitted by their team members.
A table lists all leave requests pending validation. For each request, the manager can mention the reasons for their decision. Leave requests can be approved by the manager, the director (manager’s manager) or any other employee designated in the configuration. Note that you can define up to 5 approval levels in the workflow with the possibility of having several approvers at each level. With such granularity, My Intranet is one of the most advanced leave management software on the market.
Several tools are at the manager’s disposal to help them make their decision :
A schedule enabling them to see who is present and who is absent over a given period according to planned leave and travel for company staff. Those plannings allow managers to quickly make a decision. The leave schedule is accessible to all workforce. It can be sorted by date, employee category, location and team. It is useful to schedule project planning.
The HR manager (or any other person entitled to administrate the leave module) can generate an absence report at any point for any period of time. It is possible to filter the report per employee category, per location, per team and per employee.
To facilitate human resources management, the person in charge can also export this report in an XML format file, immediately usable in Excel (or any other spreadsheet software compatible with the XML format). As a result, the data is consolidated and can be easily used for payroll processing. If payroll management is outsourced, the HR department can share this file with the accounting firm in charge of payroll processing.
There is a feature to link each user with a payroll ID to ease data importation in payroll process.
The report automatically generated in real time is composed of four tables :
- A table containing the different calculations of leave entitlement per employee for the selected period
- A table showing the different types of leave taken during the period
- A table showing the different leave requests submitted during the period
- A table showing the different overtime recovery declared during the period
This reporting is very useful in administrative management of employees. It allows the personnel management department to monitor absenteeism and save time thanks to the dematerialization of this HR process.
My Intranet is an online tool that is as well adapted to the needs of SMEs as of major accounts. Indeed, the configuration of the solution includes a lot of parameters with many customizations.
