Holiday Management Tool


When it comes to managing employee holiday requests or absence, many organizations are still using Excel spreadsheets, paper forms, and email. These methods are simply not sustainable for a growing organization and the resulting inefficiency and potential abuse leads to unnecessary financial losses.

Convedo’s Holiday Management Tool application helps employees and supervisors to ensure holidays are correctly and efficiently recorded, providing significant cost and time savings. The app addresses reductions to holiday accruals, manages staffing issues due to overlapping holidays and miscommunication, and tracks trends in employee leave.

The application delivers value to supervisors, managers and HR by providing instant access to accurate employee holiday and other absence records. It allows employees to quickly access their holiday entitlement and request time off work with ease. Additionally, this is all provided within an easy to use online mobile-ready web application.

Key Features

  • Employee self-service: Employees and their deputies can submit requests for various types of leave. The holiday balances are only debited for certain types of leave.
  • Empower your team to manage holiday requests: Employees and supervisors can review current holiday balance, the approval status of requests, and deletion of planned leave.
  • Simple holiday calculations: Employee holiday balances are updated automatically at the beginning of each holiday year. Annual holiday allowance can vary based on job level and employment status, e.g. full-time/part-time, permanent/temporary.
  • Complete company leave management: Supervisors can make decisions on all requests submitted for employees in their own teams. Performance managers can review escalated holiday requests when supervisors fail to approve the requests.
  • Team calendar: Improve efficiency and transparency with a central calendar available for supervisors to compare requests awaiting approval with approved holidays in their teams.
  • Dynamic data insight: Performance Managers and Supervisors have access to various records and reports regarding employee holiday request.
  • Automated notifications: All users in the application receive email notifications relevant to their role e.g. employees receive request confirmation emails and performance managers receive emails regarding employee records.
