Navigating the Summer PTO Increase
Updated: Feb 16
With the summer season soon approaching, and longer vacations becoming high in demand, employers may need to deal with an increase in paid time off (PTO) requests. While these breaks can be good for the well-being and productivity levels of employees, a busy summer can lead to hectic scheduling issues for managers.
Does your business have an organized system in place for submitting PTO? Are you able to track dates to ensure that multiple employees aren’t taking the same days off from work?
SynchronyHR’s integrated payroll technology can help your team manage and track PTO requests that are independently submitted by employees through a user-friendly, digital portal. Employees can also use this portal to review vacation balances before planning a trip, and can view the status of their PTO requests without regularly checking in with their managers.
Whatever you do when it comes to managing PTO, be sure to also encourage employees to take some time off this summer. A vacation-friendly culture can lead to less burnout/overwork, while overworked employees become less productive and more likely to quit.
