Does Your Enterprise Have an Efficient Paid Time-Off Tracking System?

Think quick: How are your organization’s managers currently tracking paid time off?

Unfortunately it becomes a struggle that affects accuracy and productivity and can lead to real headaches—for both HR and employees—whenever a team member wants to take a day off.


It’s no wonder that 20% of managers admit to feeling overwhelmed by the high volume of vacation requests, and 96% of professionals report that employees make mistakes when it comes to time tracking.

They didn’t know who I was, why I was there, or what I needed to do, and I felt the same way.
