Employees Can Manage Their Own Time Off in BambooHR®: Here’s How

July 6, 2021

‘Tis the season of getting away from it all, but summer vacations are only the beginning. Just like you, your employees can’t wait to use their well-earned PTO. That means questions about time-off accrual, balances, and approvals are incoming—questions that need answering for each and every employee.

With employee self-service in BambooHR, employees can see time-off information and manage their own PTO requests, which saves HR and payroll admins hours of time. But your employees may not know this option is even available!

Why You Should Use Your PTO and Encourage Your Team to Do the Same.

Even though the pandemic is playing havoc with employee mental health, employees aren’t using their PTO for fear of looking bad to coworkers and leadership. And the end result—burnout, lost productivity, reduced job satisfaction, and more—is a rotten deal for everyone, employee and employer.
